KING HENRY VHIth's HOUSEHOLD BOOK, being 
an Account of the Privy Purse expenses of Henry VIII. from 
November, 1529, to December 1532 ; now first printed from the 
original MS.; with Notes and Illustrations by NICHOLAS HARRIS 
NICOLAS, Esq. F.S.A. 8vo. price IL Is. 

This volume abounds in curious particulars, illustrative not only 
of the Manners, Customs, and Expenses of the time, but, to some 
extent, of the personal character of Henry the Eighth. From it 
may be traced where the King was on each day during the above 
period, his occupations, and amusements, together with the names 
of the persons composing his household, their wages, and the 
cost of their dresses, &c. It likewise contains numerous entries 
relative to Ann Boleyn, and the information which they afford 
respecting her are both new and important. Among other items are 
the sums paid for jewels, books, furniture, clothes, &c. ; the charges 
of the King's Fools and Jester ; and the expenses attendant on his 
Majesty's interview with Francis I. at Calais, in October, 1 532. Each 
month's account is examined and signed by the King. The following 
persons are particularly mentioned: Cardinal Wolsey; Cromwell, 
Earl of Essex; the Marquess of Exeter; the Princess, afterwards 
Queen Mary ; Thomas Boleyn, Earl of Wiltshire ; his son, Lord 
Rochford ; the first Earl and Countess of Bedford ; the Earl of 
Derby; the Protector Somerset; Bishop Latimer; the Duke of 
Norfolk ; Sir Richard Gresham ; Sir Anthony Browne ; Sir Francis 
Bryan ; Sir Francis Weston ; Sir Henry Norris ; Brereton ; and 
the notorious Mark Smeton ; Domingo ; Sexton, the Fool, &c. &c.

of King Henry VIII. is now in the possession of the Publisher, for

PREFACE. 



THE following pages present an account of the sums 
paid out of the Privy Purse of King Henry VIII. 
from the 17th of November, 1529, to the end of 
December, 1532; and as every payment, whether 
for the daily expenses of the Royal establishments, 
or for the gratification of His Majesty's wishes, is 
minutely noticed, it must be evident that they afford 
interesting information, not merely on the general 
customs and manners of the times, but on the personal 
character of that monarch, his occupations, amuse- 
ments, and places of residence. 

Among the materials for History, private Letters 
have, long since, been deemed of the utmost value ; 
but the curious facts contained in records like those 
now introduced to the notice of the public, have not 
obtained the attention which they deserve : hence it 
will not perhaps be irrelevant to give a brief account 
of the few works of this nature which have been 
printed, as well as of some which still remain in 
Manuscript. 

The first in point of time, is the " Liber Quoti- 
dianus Gontrarotulatoris Garderobae, Anno Regni 
Regis Edwardi Primi Vicesimo Octavo: A. D. 1299 
and 1300," printed in 1787 by the Society of Anti- 
quaries, from a MS. in their library. This volume

which is but partially known, abounds in highly 
interesting information, illustrative of the History, 
Manners, Expences, Army, Navy, Provisions, Cos- 
tume, &c. of the thirteenth century ; and as an ad- 
junct to Historical and Antiquarian inquiries, it cannot 
be too highly estimated. Few MSS. have been so 
well edited ; but amidst much ground for praise, it is 
to be regretted that it does not contain an Index, 
an omission which considerably lessens its utility. 
Another MS. of the same kind, of the 3 1st and 32nd 
years of Edward the First, is also extant,* but it has 
never been printed. In 1790 the Society of Anti- 
quaries published " A Collection of Ordinances 
and Regulations for the Government of the Royal 
Household, made in divers reigns, from King Ed- 
ward III. to King William and Queen Mary," and 
which is copiously cited in the Notes to this work. 
Only one more publication of the sort remains to be 
noticed, the Household Book of Henry Algernon 
Percy, Fifth Earl of Northumberland, which ap- 
peared privately in 1770, edited by Bishop Percy, 
and which has been recently reprinted by the Pub- 
lisher of this volume. 

Independently, however, of Household expences 
which occur in separate volumes, many have been 
printed in other works. Of these it will be suf- 
ficient to refer to the few which are to be found in the 
" Archaeologia/ 5 in County Histories, and more par- 
ticularly, the Household payments of the family of 
Kytson in Mr. Gage's admirable " History and An-

tiquities of Hengrave." Although not more than 
four accounts of the expenditure of sovereigns or in- 
dividuals have been published, those which are known 
to exist in MS. are both numerous and valuable. 
Besides those of the 3 1 st and 32nd of Edward I. which 
have just been mentioned, four large volumes of the 
kind are preserved in the Chapter House : one con- 
taining the Royal disbursements from the 1st of Octo- 
ber, 21st Henry VII. 1505, to the 20th November, 
1st Henry VIIL 1509; another, from the 1st of 
May, 1st Henry VIII. 1510, to February in the 
9th Henry VIIL 1518; the third, entitled "The 
King's Books of Payments beginning 1st April, 9th 
Henry VIIL 1518, to December in the 12th Henry 
VIIL 1520; and the fourth is called " A Book of 
Arrears of the 14th Henry VIIL 1522-3. 

The expences noticed in the following sheets 
extend from the 17th November 21st Henry VIIL 
1529, to the end of December 24th Henry VIIL 
1532 ; and in the library of the Royal Society is 
the book of Quarterly Payments from February in 
the 29th Henry VIIL 1538, to Midsummer, 3Srd 
Henry VIIL 1541. In the library of the British 
Museum is the Household Book of a Citizen, or 
perhaps Clergyman, of London, from March 1594 
to March 1595.* Lord Bagot possesses an inte- 
resting MS. of the Household expences of Ed- 
ward Stafford, Duke of Buckingham, which his 
Lordship some time since offered to allow the So- 
ciety of Antiquaries to print, but, extraordinary as 
* Cottonian MSS. Vespasianus, F. xvi. 



iv PREFACE. 

it may appear, the proposition was not accepted : and 
doubtlessly many other documents of the same kind 
are extant. 

Of the MSS. which have been cited, only those 
in the Chapter House and the one in the library 
of the Royal Society resemble that printed in this 
volume ; but neither of them is precisely like it, 
in its objects or contents. The one in the library 
of the Royal Society consists principally of quarterly 
payments of wages to servants and retainers, and of 
sums paid pursuant to the warrant of the Lord Privy 
Seal : they present the charges of Ambassadors, of 
other public officers, and of posts and couriers, as 
well as those of various articles purchased or prepared 
by the king's commands, a few extracts from which, 
of general interest, will be found in a subsequent 
page ; these afford, however, but a very imperfect 
idea of the value of that MS. in illustration of the 
history and manners of the time, though it does not 
appear to have been once noticed from the year 
1762, when it was referred to by Walpole, to the 
present time ! The MS. now printed, contains, on 
the contrary, what may be termed Henry's personal 
expences, whether arising from his purchases; from his 
" rewards" to those who brought him presents ; from 
his losses at dice, cards, bowls, and other games ; 
from his attachment to Anne Boleyn, or his fa- 
vourite courtiers ; or from the wages and liveries of 
his servants, fools, jesters, and other minions. The 
accounts in the other MSS. were paid quarterly, and 
rested on the responsibility of the persons entrusted 



PREFACE. V 

to keep them ; these were daily, and are attested at 
the end of each month by the signature of the King 
himself. Notwithstanding that they differ in charac- 
ter, they mutually confirm and illustrate each other ; 
and if a judicious compilation were made from the 
whole series which has been mentioned, and which 
could be comprised in one, or at the most, two quarto 
volumes, invaluable information would be given to 
the world on the most interesting period of English 
History the period marked by the revival of all 
which benefits and adorns society, Science, Lite- 
rature, and the Fine Arts. The Accounts of the 
Citizen of London are remarkable for the minuteness 
with which the expence of every article of food, from 
a farthing's worth of fruit to several pounds' worth 
of meat, is stated; and as evidence of the price of 
provisions and other articles, wine, servants' wages, 
&c. at the time, it is extremely useful. In the margin 
the names of the guests at dinner and supper on each 
day are recorded, and it altogether exhibits a curious 
picture of the manners of the Elizabethan age. 

It must be at once obvious, that Manuscripts 
which throw light upon British History, but which 
are not sufficiently popular to enable a bookseller to 
print them, ought to be published by the Society 
incorporated for the sole purpose of advancing " the 
study of Antiquity, and the history of former times," 
and to which we are indebted for two of the volumes 
which have been alluded to ; but the zeal which 
caused them to be edited has unfortunately long 
since evaporated. If it be thought impossible for 



Vi PREFACE. 

the Society of Antiquaries to publish all the MSS. 
which have been enumerated, the most striking 
entries, and a summary of the expences of different 
departments might, at least, be extracted from 
them. The objection that few of its Fellows would 
undertake the trouble of editing such works without 
some pecuniary advantage, may be met by the re- 
mark, that it possesses two paid Secretaries, who are 
alike distinguished for their literary productions ; or, 
if the duties of these officers be too severe to admit of 
their doing so, by asking whether it would not be a 
far more legitimate application of its funds to 
appoint persons to prepare such MSS. for the press, 
and to remunerate them for their labours, than to 
waste the Society's resources, by publishing useless 
articles, because they are gratuitous contributions ; 
and still more, by inquiring whether the cost of 
producing such compilations, with illustrative notes, 
would not confer infinitely more honor upon that 
body, and tend in a greater degree to advance the 
objects for which it exists, than a heavy expenditure 
on useless engravings ? 

The Manuscript of these sheets is imperfect both 
at the commencement and end ; in one or two 
places part of a leaf has been torn off, and in another 
a folio has been abstracted, whilst the first page is in 
many places illegible. Its contents and orthography 
are printed literally, and the imperfections in the 
copy pointed out by stars : the few blanks which 
will be found, also occur in the MS. The earliest 
notice of it which has been discovered is in the Lans- 



PREFACE. Vii 

down MS. 737, which contains numerous extracts 
made from it by Peter le Neve, Norroy King of 
Arms, from 1704 to 1729, who says he bought the 

original " of Wynde, Esq. and sold it for the 

same price to the Right Honorable Lord Harley, son 

and heir of the Earl of Oxford 1723 ;" and adds 

in the margin, " It was the book of Sir Orlando 
Bridgeman, Knight, Lord Keeper, and in the be- 
ginning is his hand-writing." The words printed 
in italics have been almost obliterated, perhaps in 
consequence of Le Neve's having afterwards re- 
tained the volume instead of selling it ; but perhaps 
because it was surreptitiously taken from Lord 
Oxford's collection. The next notice which occurs 
of it, is in Walpole's " Anecdotes of Painting," 
from which it appears that in 1762 it was in the 
possession of Mrs. Bridgeman, of Hanover Square. 
The name might suggest the idea that her husband 
was a descendant of Sir Orlando Bridgeman, who 
purchased it in 1 634, and hence that the book was 
in her possession in consequence of that relationship ; 
but this is contradicted by the fact of its having 
passed from Sir Orlando's family to Mr. Wynde 
and from him to Le Neve sometime after 1704, who 
in 1723 sold it to the Earl of Oxford, though in 
1762 we find it belonged to a Mrs. Bridgeman. After 
that year nothing more is known of it, than that it 
was purchased about a twelvemonth since at the 
sale of an Undertaker and Broker, of the name of 
Gomme. In the fly leaf at the beginning is the fol- 
io wing memorandum, which LeNeve says was written 



PREFACE. 

by Sir Orlando Bridgeman : " Accounts of H. 
EIGHT, and signed with his own hande, I gott it by 
Chance this yeere, 1634." With the exceptions 
just noticed, the MS. is in fine preservation. From 
Le Neve's extracts the contents of the folio which 
is now wanting, have been recovered, though 
not in the original words, and will be found at 
the end of this volume ; but all the other imper- 
fections seem to have existed when in his possession, 
for he takes no notice of the first folio ; he expressly 
says of pages 131, 132, 133, that the leaf was then 
torn ; and the last folio of the MS. was the same as 
at present. 

Walpole conjectures that they were the accounts 
kept by " Sir Bryan Tuke, the Treasurer of the 
Chambers," but it is much more likely that they 
were those of Sir William Fitz-William, afterwards 
Earl of Southampton, Treasurer of the Household : 
nothing positive, however, can be said on the subject. 

Such notes as are requisite to explain the items, 
or to describe the individuals mentioned, are intro- 
duced into the Index, which contains references to 
every person, place, and thing, recorded. The Editor 
is sensible that many of his observations are imper- 
fect, and not a few, perhaps, erroneous: in one 
or two instances he has been obliged to confess 
his inability to throw any light upon the subject, 
and he will be much gratified if his readers do not 
consider that there is still greater cause for a 
similar confession. Simple as many of the Notes 
appear, the labour and research with which they 



PREFACE. IX 

have been attended, were considerable ; and to 
have partially failed when complete success was 
almost impossible, would not, he trusts, be discredit- 
able to a far abler Antiquary. His friend Dr. Mey- 
rick, for whose assistance in his literary pursuits the 
Editor has frequently had cause to express his gra- 
titude, and James Hey wood Markland, Esq. Director 
of the Society of Antiquaries, have most kindly and 
liberally afforded him their aid ; and the information 
which these gentlemen have respectively contributed 
is equal in interest and importance to what might be 
expected from their reputation. 

1st August, 1827. 



INTRODUCTORY REMARKS. 

On the 23rd of October, 1529, Henry the Eighth 
came to his manor of Greenwich \ l in the November 
following he went on board the Treasurer's ship ; 2 
and about the 2()th of the same month arrived at 
York Place/ now called Whitehall, where he spent 
his Christmas. 

Anno. 1530. Early in February, 1530, his Ma- 
jesty was at Hampton Court, 4 and on the 16th 
at Battersea, but returned the same day to York 
Place. 5 On the 21st he was again at Hampton 
Court, 6 and on the 13th of March, the celebrated 
Hugh Latimer, afterwards Bishop of Worcester, 
preached before him and was rewarded with a gra- 
tuity of five pounds, from which time he cannot be 
traced by these Accounts, until the 5th of April, 
when he was at More Park, in Hertfordshire ; r and 
towards the end of that month he was at Windsor. 8 
Between April and July, Henry seems to have re- 
sided either at York Place or Hampton Court : 
about the middle of July he was evidently at Oking, 9 
or Ockham Park, in Surrey ; on the 23rd at Guil- 
ford ; 10 on the 29th at Windsor ; n and returned to 
Hampton Court between the 10th and 13th of 
August, 12 where he remained until the 16th, on

which day he went to Easthampstead, 1 and on the 
17th was at Asheridge, in Buckinghamshire. 2 On 
the a 1st he was at Ampthill, 3 where he appears to 
have remained until about the 4th of September ; 
on the 5ih of that month he was at Hertford/ 
having in passing through Hitchin on the preceding 
day, given forty shillings to the Friars of that 
place. 5 His Majesty did not quit Hertford Park 
until the 8th or 9th, when he proceeded to Wal- 
tham, at which place we find him on the 12th. 6 He 
seems to have been again at More Park on the 
21st, 7 soon after which he returned to Hampton 
Court, where, it is particularly stated, he was on the 
44th of October. 8 He resided chiefly at that 
palace, occasionally, however, going to York Place, 9 
arid perhaps to Greenwich, until the death of Car- 
dinal Wolsey, on the 29th November, in that year ; 
when, Hall says " he removed from Hampton Court 
to Greenwich, where he with Queen Katherine kept 
a solempne Christmas ; and on the twelfe night he 
satte in the halle in his estate, where as were divers 
enterludes, riche maskes and disportes, and after that 
a great banket." 10 Certain it is, however, that Henry 
did not leave Hampton Court until the 8th of De- 
cember, 11 and it is most probable that he did not go to 
Greenwich until about the 14th of that month, 32 
though it is unquestionable that he was there on the 
19th." 13 The only evidence of the festivities men-

tioned by Hall, are entries of money delivered to 
the Princess Mary and Lady Margaret Douglas, 
the King's niece, 1 " to disport with all this Christ- 
inas ;" 2 the large sum of 26 151. 9s. 6kd. paid for 
plate, and jewelley, chiefly for the latter, between 
the 21st of December, 1530, and the 6th of January, 
1531 ; new year's gifts ; and money lost at play. 

Ao. 1531. After Christmas, according to Hall 
" The King came to his Manor of Westminster which 
before was called Yorke Place ;" 3 and we find that on 
the 1 7th January, 153 1, he is said to have been there, 4 
and where it seems he was on the 28th of that 
month ; 5 on the 7th and 27th of February ; 6 and on 
the 9th of March. 7 On the 20th, he appears to 
have amused himself with shooting at Tothill, 8 
near Bridewell ; and on the 23rd he was clearly 
at frs palace of Bridewell. 9 The divorce then al- 
most wholly occupied his Majesty's mind, though 
the only entries which in any way refer to it^ 
are of books sent to him from different abbots 
and priors, and the removal of boat loads of books 
from one palace to another. 10 Hall takes no fur- 
ther notice of the king's residence until Whit- 
suntide, namely, the 28th of May, after which, 
he informs us, " The Kyng and the Queene re- 
moved [apparently from Greenwich] to Windsor, and 
there continued tyll the xiiij daye of Julye, on which 
daye the Kyng removed to Woodstocke, and left 
hire at Wyndsore, where she laye a whyle, and after

removed to the More, and afterwarde to Estham- 
stede : and after this day, the Kyng and she never 
saw together." 1 It is evident from these Accounts that 
Henry again amused himself with shooting at Tothill* 
about the 29th March ; 2 that he was at Green- 
wich on the 13th of April; 3 that he went from it 
by water on the same day to York Place ; 4 but he 
returned soon afterwards, 5 and was there on the 
28th of May, 6 whilst Hall's statement that he 
then proceeded to Hampton Court is proved by 
several entries on the 10th, llth, and 12th of 
June ; especially by a payment of 14s. 8d. " to the 
watermen for carying of the King's stuffe from 
Greenwich to Hampton Court, eleven men for 
two days:" 7 on the 15th he is expressly said to 
have been there, 8 and again on the 18th, 22nd, 
and 24th, when watermen were paid for waiting 
" the day the King came from Westminster to Put- 
ney," 9 an entry which probably referred to their at- 
tendance a short time before. On the 3rd of July, 
Henry was at York Place," 10 and on the 9th at 
Windsor ; u but so far from there being any cor- 
roboration of Hall's assertion, that on the 14th of 
July, " the King removed to Woodstock," it may be 
inferred that he was either at Windsor or Hampton 
Court until the 28th, 12 with the exception of the 
22nd, when he was at Chertseye. 13 It is however un- 
questionable that he commenced his progress to- 
wards the end of July ; and the following seems to

have been the itinerary of his journey. At Guilford 
on the 29th of July/ at, or near, Farnham, in Surrey, 
on the 2nd of August ; 2 at Odiham on the 4th ; 3 at the 
Vyne in Hampshire, the seat of Lord Sandys, from 
the 4th to the 5th, 4 < during which time he hunted 
in Wolmer forest ; 5 on the 8th he was at East- 
hampstead, 6 whence he proceeded to Woodstock, 
where we find him on the 22nd, T and probably also 
on the 13th. 8 His Majesty remained there until the 
2nd or 3rd of September, 9 and evidently enjoyed 
every diversion which the country afforded him, 
namely, hunting, shooting, hawking, fishing, &c. From 
Woodstock he went to Grafton in Northamptonshire, 
where he arrived on the 5th, 10 when the Mayor 
of Northampton sent him a present of pears, 11 
and where it appears he gave an audience to the 
Hungarian Ambassadors, for whom a house was 
hired at Stony Stratford. 12 Henry continued 
at Grafton until about the 10th, when he went 
to Ampthill, 13 in Bedfordshire, and purchased 
some silks and jewellery on the 15th; 14 and 
on the 20th we find him at Waltham Abbey, 15 
where he was also on the 9th of October. 16 Hall 
informs us that about this time the King caused 
a solemn obsequy to be kept at that place for 
the Duchess of Augoulesme, mother of the King of 
France, who died on the 22nd of September, at 
which ceremony he assisted, attended by many of

his nobles. 1 On the 23rd of that Month he healed a 
poor woman at Havering Bower, 2 though he re- 
turned to Waltham before the 25th, 3 and on or before 
the 31st he arrived at his palace of Greenwich, 4 
having previously fished at Hunsdon. 5 

It is uncertain how long Henry continued at 
Greenwich, but perhaps a few weeks only ; for we 
find the road near Peckham mended, in expectation 
of his passing it, on the 23d of November, on which 
day the watermen were likewise paid for removing 
his " stuff" to Hampton Court ; 6 and on the 4th of 
December we positively learn that he was at that 
place. T Hall says " the King kepte his Chris- 
temas at Greenwyche with great solempnite, but all 
men sayde that there was no myrthe in that 
Christemas because the Queene and the ladies were 
absent;" 8 there is only one entry, namely of the 
sum of 561. 13s. 4d. given to the Earl of Angus, 
on the 1 5th of December, 9 which tends to shew 
where Henry was at that time, and which agrees 
with the Chronicler's statement. 

Anno. 1532. On the 16th of January, 1532, it 
seems his Majesty was at York Place, and on the 
18th, books were sent there to him from the book- 
binder ; 10 and we find that plate and furniture were 
conveyed there about the same time from Green-

18th of which month, according to Hall, he gave 
an audience to the Speaker and Members of the 
House of Commons. 1 No account of Henry's 
residence occurs after that date until the 8th of 
April, when Lady Sydney sent him a present of 
orange pies at Greenwich, 2 and where he continued 
until the 16th. Early in April " sodeynly began a 
pestylence in Westmynster," 3 and the disease evi- 
dently extended to Greenwich, for on the 1 1th of that 
month several persons were sent out of that town 
' ( by reason of the plage." 4 On the 1 6th of April 
his Majesty went to Westminster/ but returned 
again to Greenwich before the 26th, upon which day 
a hawk was brought to him at that palace. 6 He 
was, however, at Westminster on the 8th of May, 7 
though it may be inferred that he was at Greenwich 
on the 15th. 8 There can be little doubt that from the 
8th of April to the end of May he divided his time be- 
tween those palaces, for as the parliament was then 
sitting at Westminster, his presence was occasionally 
indispensable ; and we learn from Hall, that on the 16th 
of May, Sir Thomas More delivered the great seal to 
the King at that place. On the 1st of June Henry 
was at Eltham, 9 where he resided until the 3rd of 
July, 10 the entries during which period are excessively 
curious, as indicative of the manner in which he 
passed his time. 11 He arrived at Waltham on or 
before the 4th of July, 12 and continued there, or at

Hunsdon until about the 2 1st, when he com- 
menced his summer progress into Berkshire, Bedford- 
shire, Bucks, and Oxfordshire. On the 23rd of July 
he was at Ampthill, 1 at which place he continued 
until the 28th or 29th/ when he proceeded to 
Grafton ; where, on the 31st, a monk brought him a 
letter in a purse. 3 He quitted Grafton about the 
5th of August, and on the 6th was at Bucking- 
ham; 4 on the 10th, he was at Woodstock, 5 
where he ordered 661. 13$. 4d. to be paid to 
Doctor Chambers for the scholars of Oxford, on the 
14th. 6 From Woodstock he went to Langley 
Park, near Colnbrook, at which place a hundred 
crowns were given to him to play at dice on the 
18th; T and on the 25th he was at Abingdon. 8 On 
the 27th he was both there and at Ewelme, the 
distance between which does not exceed ten miles : 
at the former, Sir Simon Harcourt's servant brought 
him a brace of greyhounds, and at the latter an 
Italian presented him with a melon. 9 His Majesty 
appears to have passed through Reading on the 
28th/ and to have reached Windsor on the 31st of 
August/ 1 where he remained until the 17th of Sep- 
tember, 12 when he went to Chertsey ; 1S but on the 2 1st 
he was at Hampton Court. 14 No notice is to be found 
of Henry's having been at Ampthill after the 28th 
of July ; whence, Hall asserts, he proceeded to 
Windsor, where he created AnneBoleyn, Marchioness

of Pembroke, on the 1st of September in this year ; 
after which he removed to Greenwich. 1 It is manifest 
from these Accounts, that the King was at Windsor 
on the 1st of September, but nothing occurs rela- 
tive to that ceremony : she is for the first time 
described in them as Marchioness of Pembroke, on 
the 19th of that month. His stay at Hampton 
Court was very, short, for on the 28th he was 
at Greenwich. 2 The period had now arrived 
which Henry had fixed upon for his interview with 
Francis, the French monarch ; and having visited 
his fleet at Sheppey on the 30th, 3 he set out for 
Dover early in October, and on the 6th was at the 
Mote Park, near Maidstone. 4 Hall says that on the 
10th of October the King came to Dover, and very 
early in the morning of Friday the 1 1th, embarked 
for Calais, where he arrived at ten o'clock on the 
same day. 5 From these Accounts it is evident that 
Henry went from the Mote to Sheppey by water, 
thence to Canterbury, where he slept, and then pro- 
ceeded to Dover. The payments mentioned " to the 
waits of Canterbury ;" to the " keeper of the house 
where the King lodged " in that city ; to the master 
of the barge and watermen for rowing him to Shep- 
pey ; 6 as well the reward to a man who brought bills 
to Dover, 7 occurred after his Majesty had quitted 
those places ; as the first three were paid on the 1 1th, 
and the fourth on the day, when, from the next item, 
it is certain the King was at Calais, namely, on the

1 2th ; and which agrees with Hall's statement. The 
proceedings of the royal party whilst in France ; the 
particulars of the interview between the Monarchs ; 
and of the feastings on the occasion, are minutely re- 
lated by that Chronicler, but it is not necessary to 
allude more fully to them, than to observe, that 
the Accounts about that time are extremely in- 
teresting. Among the entries most worthy of notice, 
are the present of grapes and pears from the 
Great Master of France to Anne Boleyn ; the 
money lost by the King to the Cardinal of Lorrain, 
the Duke de Guise, and others, at tennis and dice 
at Boulogne, and which amounted in one day 
to 1631. 6s. Sd. ; the purchase of a hat and feather 
for Henry at that place ; a gratuity to the singers of 
the French monarch, and to those of the Cardinal of 
Lorrain ; payment of the doublets given to the guard 
to wrestle in before the two kings at Calais ; the sum 
of 7001. paid to Cromwell without any reason being 
mentioned ; the purchase of masking geer, or mas- 
querade dresses ; the large sums paid for jewels, 
and which amounted during his stay in France 
to 359%l. 12s. ; the charges of the fool's lodgings 
and expenses ; Henry's offering to the image of our 
lady of Boulogne, and which is especially mentioned by 
Hall j 1 the presents of hawks from Francis to Henry ; 
the charges for boats for carrying the King from 
the ship to the shore, and again from Calais to his 
vessel on his return, &c. The whole amount paid by

King left Dover until he again landed there, namely, 
thirty-three days, was 40331. } Os. 1 1 d. Of that sum, 
as has jusf been shewn, all excepting about a ninth, 
was for jewellery, great part of which was evidently 
given as presents to persons in the King of France's 
suite. According to Hall, Henry embarked at Calais 
on the 13th of November at midnight, and arrived at 
Dover at five in the morning of the 14th/ which 
agrees with the entry on the 13th of a payment of 
4s. Sd. " for a boat to bring the King aboarde his 
ship at Calys ;" 2 and of the same sum " paied to the 
King's own hands for his offering to our Lady in the 
Rock at Dover," on the 1 4th. 3 It is certain that 
Henry remained at Dover until the 16th, when he 
went to Sandwich, and seems to have rested there 
that night, to the friars of which place he gave 
31. 1 Os. " by way of rewarde ;" 4 and crossed the 
river Stour on the next day 5 on his way to Canter- 
bury, where he apparently stopped at the house of 
Sir John Feneux. 6 The waits of that city again played 
to the king, and were rewarded with 185. Sd. on 
the 19th, r on which day his Majesty arrived at Sit- 
tingbourne ; and the " wife of the Lion," or in other 
words, the wife of the man who kept the Lion Inn 
there, received d gratuity of 4s. Sd. 8 On the 20th, 
Henry was at Stone Castle, near Dartford, where it 
may be inferred he remained that night, as 91- 6s. Sd. 
was given him, which he lost at play to Anne Bo- 
leyn, Sir Francis Bryan, and Sir Francis Weston. 9

Thence the King removed to Eltham at which 
place he was on the 24th, 1 and on the 28th he was at 
Greenwich, where he remained until the 30th, on 
which day he went by water to Westminster. 2 On 
the 1st of December he was at the Tower of London/ 
but on the 9th his Majesty was again at Greenwich 4 
before the 1 8th of which month, he had been twice 
in his barge to the Tower. 5 On the 21st he seems 
to have gone to York Place, 6 but if so he returned 
the same day to Greenwich/ where Hall says he 
spent his Christmas, 8 and which is corroborated by the 
last entry in these Accounts ; " Item the same,

always attended by a smith with locks and bolts 
for his chamber-doors ; 10 that money was given 
to a footman to be distributed in charity by the 
way ;" that in the hunting season his hounds were 
sent from one palace to another, the expenses of re- 
moving which are minutely stated; 12 that he was

other favourites; 9 and that the celebrated Anne 
Boleyn frequently accompanied him. 14 Wherever he

went gratuities or rewards were given to the keepers 
of the parks or forests through which he passed, or 
hunted, not merely to those belonging to the Crown, 
but to the keepers of the parks of private persons ; 
and if he went on board one of his ships, a sum was 
distributed amongst the crew. 

Upon the personal character of Henry the Eighth, 
it has been remarked in the preface, these Accounts 
throw much light ; and as whatever relates to the 
private conduct of eminent persons, is by far the 
most pleasing, and perhaps most useful part of anti- 
quarian inquires, the information here presented 
on that of Henry, is both valuable and interesting. * 
His Majesty's principal amusement was gambling 
in its most extensive and diversified shapes, and all his 
relaxations from the duties of his station in a greater 
or less degree partook of it. The philosopher will 
be at no loss to account for the fact ; for it is the fre- 
quent attendant upon that satiety which unlimited 
power is sure to produce, though it is often equally 
the passion of those who want even the necessaries of 
life. That Henry, tired of more rational enjoy- 
ment, and incapable of finding a permanent relief from 
the ennui of greatness, should have indulged to excess 
in games of chance is not surprising ; and to shew 
the extent to which that passion was carried, it is 
sufficient to state that the whole amount paid for 
his losses at cards, dice, tennis, and other games, 

* As every thing mentioned in the following pages is referred to 
in the Index, it has not been thought necessary to repeat the re- 
ferences to them.

together with those lost in wagers amounted in 
three years to 3243/. 5s. }0d. It is not a little 
singular that though passionately addicted to gam- 
bling himself he was sufficiently careful of the 
morals of his subjects to issue a proclamation in the 
18th year of his reign, forbidding them to play at 
cards and bowls. 

Of his "out-of-door" amusements, shooting at 
the rounds, hunting, hawking, fishing, horse-racing 
bowls, and tennis, were the chief; and in his 
palaces many hours were daily passed at " the 
tables" or back-gammon, shovel-board, dice, and 
cards : wagers on races run against dogs, or at 
shooting or hunting ; payments to people for making 
dogs perform tricks ; gratuities to persons for dif- 
ferent feats, as eating a buck, riding two horses at 
once ; and others of a similar description are con- 
tinually mentioned. Music and literature also occa- 
sionally lent their aids to his enjoyments ; and that he 
encouraged the latter is manifest from the exhibitions 
he founded at the Universities, his occasional gratuities 
to scholars, and his support of boys at St. Paul's, 
and other schools, both in this country and Paris. 
His love of architecture is shewn by the money 
he expended in building, at his different residences, 
and we find that he spent on York Place, from 
April, 1530 to July, 1532, 400#, besides 10/. 19*. 2</.

forming a total, exclusive of repairs and alterations, of 
4f064<li. 5s. lOd. within three years. Nor was he in- 
different to painting, as several entries occur of money 
given to painters for their works ; but as they have 
been commented upon by Horace Walpole in his 
" Anecdotes of Painting," they afford no new infor- 
mation on that interesting subject. That writer also 
gives several entries relative to Hans Holbein from the 
" Book of Quarterly Payments" in the library of the 
Royal Society ; and as they are intimately con- 
nected with the allusion here made to Henry's taste 
for the arts, accurate copies have been made of them 
from that manuscript. 

After the death of Jane Seymour, the King was 
not a little perplexed in his choice of her successor : 
the Duchess Dowager of Milan was first thought 
of, but she is said to have declined that honor, 
because nature had not prepared her for it, by en- 
dowing her with two heads ! Walpole informs us, that 
the first of these entries refers to Holbein's having 
been sent to paint her portrait in December, 1538 : 

" December, A. 30 Henry VIII. 1538. " Item, 
Payde to Hans Holbyn, one of the kingis payn- 
ters, by the kingis commaundement, certefyed by 
my lorde pryviseales lettre xli. for his costs and 
chargs at this tyme sent abowte certeyn his gracs 
affares into the parties of High Burgony, by way of 
his gracs rewarde, xli" 

That the painter was abroad at Christmas, in 
that year, is evident from the entries of payments 
then made to the royal establishment ;

" Item, for Hans Holbyn, paynter, nihil." 

A letter from Nicholas Wotton, who with the 
Richard Bearde there mentioned, were deputed 
to negociate the marriage between Henry and Ann 
of Cleves, illustrates the next entry ; for it proves 
that " his Grace's affairs" meant to paint the portrait 
of that lady, and of her sister, Amelia. Wot- 
ton's letter, which has been printed by Mr. Ellis,* 
is dated at Duren, the llth of August, 1539: 
after describing Ann, he says, " your Grace's ser- 
vante, Hanze Albein, hath taken the effigies of my 
Ladye Anne and the Lady Amelye, and hathe ex- 
pressyd theyr imaiges verye lyvelye."

The history of that portrait, which, however 
" lyvelye," was not faithful, though such the ambas- 
sadors obviously meant to describe it, has been told by 
Walpole and Granger, and is repeated by Mr. Ellis. 

After that time several entries occur of the pay- 
ment of Holbein's quarterly wages, of some of which the 
annexed are copies :

Walpole, and whose wages were Ivs. \]d. per

learn from another entry that the names of three of 
the King's players were Robert Histow, George 
Birche, and Richard Parrowe, and that the quarterly 
wages of the three were I/. 13s. 4d. 

Henry's fondness for jewellery was profusely 
gratified ; and in the period embraced by these ac- 
counts the enormous sum of 10,80 1/. 8s. 9d. was 
expended in precious stones, gold chains, &c. besides 
1517/J. to his goldsmith for plate. A considerable 
share of his attention was, it is well known, di- 
rected to his navy, and the few entries relating to 
it are of much interest. Horses or geldings, par- 
ticularly racing horses, and horses " that did run," 
as well as " riding boys," clothes bought for the boys 
" that ride the running horses," and riding caps for 
them, are constantly spoken of; and dogs for the 
chace were a frequent, and doubtlessly, acceptable 
present. At the christenings of the children of 
some of the chief noblemen, and of those of his 
favourites, Henry was sometimes a sponsor ; and the 
sums paid to the nurse and midwife on such occasions 
are carefully noticed. The inferior attendants of 
the Court, as huntsmen, falconers, and those of the 
king's guard, received small presents on their mar- 
riages, which varied from two to five pounds, accord- 
ing to their situations, or the degree of favor which 
they enjoyed : on the marriage of the son of" Master 
Nevill", however, the king gave him ten pounds. 
Gifts to minstrels, to the astronomer, to physicians,

to the keepers of the clocks at the different palaces, 
to posts and servants for bringing letters, to copyists, 
to the master of his barge, and the keepers of his 
Majesty's dogs, bears, hawks, &c. are very numer- 
ous. His fools, jester, and minions are prominent 
characters in these Accounts, and the information 
afforded respecting them tends to illustrate the 
manners of the age. 

Although it would be preposterous to follow a 
recent example of attempting to remove the stains 
on Henry the Eighth's character stains which 
throw all common crimes into the shade it would 
be no less absurd to deny him the common merit 
of having a few redeeming traits in his disposition. 
Besides the instances which have been alluded to 
of his taste for architecture, music, painting, and 
literature, we frequently find payments which must 
have originated in the best feelings of the human 
heart ; and of which it will be sufficient to cite, 
gifts "to an old poor man by the king's cha- 
ritable alms that laboured to obtain a bill to be 
signed ;" to a footman, " to relieve him in his sick- 
ness;" to a French fletcher, " towards his surgery ;" 
to the almoner, " for two sick men at Waltham ;" 
to a " sick priest at Hampton Court ;" to " a poor 
man that had thirteen children, for their relief;" to 
<f little Guilliam, in way of reward, because he was 
sick in London ;" to " three sick women at Green- 
wich ;" to " a poor woman in Chertsey, to purchase 
out the great seal ;" to " a blind woman, being a 
harper ;" " to a poor woman for to redeem her hus-

band out of prison ;" to " a poor woman, to obtain 
her husbands freedom, and hers in London ;" to " a 
frantick man ;" to " Great William, for his surgery, 
when he was sick at London," &c. These could only 
have emanated from momentary emotions of bene- 
volence ; and they prove that, like even greater mon- 
sters, Henry's heart was not entirely shut to the wants 
and sufferings of his fellow creatures. It is true that 
pity was a stranger to his breast when either his pride, 
or safety > or lust, or revenge was in question ; but he 
was undoubtedly compassionate upon less selfish 
occasions. 

Independently of gifts in charity, and to per- 
sons supposed to be healed by the King's touch- 
ing them, payments of 10/. per month were re- 
gularly made to Dr. Baugh for his Majesty's 

private jalms. Henry's principal associates, besides

favorites, Sir Francis Bryan, Sir Henry Norris, 
Lord Rochford, Sir Francis Weston, Sir Edward 
Seymour, the Serjeant of the Cellar, and a few 
others ; and on perusing the evidence here af- 
forded of the favor which they enjoyed, and the 
intimacy to which they were admitted, the mind 
is impressed with horror at the reflection of how 
few of them escaped falling victims to his sus- 
picion, jealousy, or revenge. But when the part- 
ners of his bed and throne met a similar fate, it

would have been a subject of surprise had the com- 
panions of his hours of revelry and enjoyment, or 
the sharers of his sports and amusements been spared. 
Of Anne Boleyn and her family, numerous curious 
particulars will be found, many of which tend to show 
the manner in which she was treated at court from 
November, 1.5 29, until her elevation to the throne; 
and as every thing which relates to her is of great 
interest, the following abstract of them may be 
acceptable. 

The precise time when Henry's attachment to 
her commenced is uncertain, but three years before 
her marriage, the Master of the Robes paid for some 
purple velvet for her ; and on the 28th, for stuff 
prepared for her use. In December following, ] 80/. 
were given to her by the King's order : in April, 1530, 
her servant was paid for finding a hare ;* and in May, 
the taylor and skinner were paid for her dresses ; 
and bows, arrows, and other articles for shooting 
were bought for her.f The large share of the king's 
affection which she then possessed, and which was 
perhaps deemed to be the harbinger of her subsequent 
honors, is evident from the fact of the Mayor of 
London having sent her a present of cherries on the 
5th of June ; and the servant who brought them 

* See Addenda." 

f Cardinal du Bellai, in a letter to the Grand Master of 
France, the Duke de Montmorency, in 1532, says " Sometimes 
Madame Anne joins our party, each equipt with the bows and 
arrows, as is, you know, the English style in hunting." " The 
Lady Anne presented me with a complete hunting suit, including 
a hat, a bow and arrow, and a greyhound."

was rewarded with 6s. 8d. out of the privy purse. 
More bows were purchased for her on the 10th 
of that month ; and in an entry in July as well 
as in the December preceding a person called 
George Taylor, is expressly styled, " my Lady Anne's 
servant." Linen cloth for her was paid for in 
September, in which month ten shillings were given 
for a cow that one of her greyhounds had killed. 
A remarkable entry occurs in November, in that 
year, from which it appears that Anne Boleyn had 
pawned one of her jewels to her sister Maryland that 
Henry ordered 20/. to be given to redeem it ; a few 
days afterwards, about twenty yards of crimson satin 
were purchased for her use. In December, eight 
guineas were given for budge skins or furs for her ; 
on the 2 1 st of that month she received twenty shil- 
lings in silver : the next day linen cloth for her shirts 
was paid for, and she was repaid 61., which she had 
given to Henry Webb by the King's command. On 
the 23rd, the same sum was given to her for playing 
money, in groats, and on the 30th, Henry gave her 
100/. as a New Years' gift. In February, 1531, her 
mercer's bill was again paid, and on the 17th, her 
servant Taylor, received 1 1/. 6s. Sd. to be "employed 
about my Lady Anne Rochford's business ;" before 
the end of which month a farm was purchased for her 
at Greenwich, and for which 86/. 13s. 4d. were 
given. Her desk was garnished with laten and gold 
in April following ; when her embroiderer was paid for 
work done for her. Early in May, 40/. were given 
her "to play ;" on the 22nd, having lost I3l.7s.6d.

INTRODUCTORY REMARKS. 

at bowls to the Sergeant of the Cellar, that sum 
was paid to him out of the Privy Purse by his Ma- 
jesty's commands; and on the 10th, eight yards of 
crimson cloth of gold were bought for her. From 
that time nothing more is said of Aime Boleyn until 
December, when her taylor's bill amounting to 
28/. 6s. 4d. for her clothes was discharged; shortly 
after which her skinner's bill of 40/. 1 5s. Sd. was like- 
wise paid. On the 29th of May, 1532, the King's 
watermen were remunerated for conveying her to 
Durham House. In June a splendid cloak and night- 
gown were purchased, and the price of all the 
materials, is detailed with the minuteness of a milliner's 
bill of the present day, from which it seems that both 
were made of black satin; that the former was edged, 
and the latter lined with velvet of the same colour ; 
and that the cloak cost altogether 91- 4s. Sd. ; whilst 
the night-gown was lined with black taffeta, and cost 
]0/. 15s. Sd. : at the same time sixteen yards of green 
damask were also purchased for her. 

In August in this year, her future elevation be- 
came so certain that the wife of one of the most 
distinguished courtiers of the time, in imitation of 
the example set nearly two years before by the Mayor 
of London, endeavoured to propitiate her favour by a 
present; as on the 17th of that month, Lady Russell, 
afterwards Countess of Bedford sent her a stag and a 
greyhound, which she gave to the King, who ordered 
40s. to be paid to the servant who brought them. 
On the 1st of September, Anne Boleyn was created 
Marchioness of Pembroke, and on the 19th of that 



INTRODUCTORY REMARKS. XXXV 

month, the Master of the Robes was paid for stuff 
which was delivered to her servant, probably for the 
costume in which she appeared at the ceremony; 
and about a fortnight afterwards certain silks 
were provided by him for her apparel, the costs 
of which were 561 She accompanied Henry to 
Calais in October, 1532; and her reception by 
Francis the First as well as the prominent part 
which she performed in the festivities that attended 
the interview between the two Monarchs, are fully 
described by Hall. From these Accounts we 
learn that the Great Master sent her a present 
of grapes and pears at Calais on the 14th of Oc- 
tober ; that on the 1 1 th of November, fifteen shil- 
lings were paid to her which she had won of Henry 
at cards at that place ; that on the 20th a few 
days after her return from France, she. Sir Francis 
Bryan and Sir Francis Weston, formed a party with 
the King at Pope Julius' game at Stone Castle in 
Kent; and again on the 25th, 26th and 31st at 
Greenwich, on which occasions his Majesty was as 
usual unsuccessful ; that on the 28th she won 
1 1/. 13s. 4</. of Henry at Cards ; and on the 25th of 
December more stuff was bought for her clothes. It 
is to be observed, that according to some authorities, 
Anne Boleyn was privately married to Henry, early 
in November, 1532, immediately after their arrival 
at Dover from Calais ; but nothing is to be found in 
these accounts either corroborative of, or contradic- 
tory to, the assertion. During the three years the 
whole sum expended for her clothes, &c. was 468l.6s. 1 d. t 



XXXVI INTRODUCTORY REMARKS. 

and within the same time she received in money 2 1 8/. 
These sums are not, it is true, remarkable for their 
amount, but they are sufficient to shew the manner 
in which she was treated by Henry, and the place 
which she occupied in his affections. Before con- 
cluding these observations relative to this celebrated 
woman, the singular manner in which her sister 
and herself are described must be pointed out. 
Until December, 1530, she is merely spoken of 
as " my Lady Anne," but from February to May, 
1531, with one exception, she is called " Lady Ann 
Rochford," though from that time until her creation 
to the Marquisate of Pembroke, she is again styled 
" Lady Ann," after which event she is mentioned either 
as " my Lady Marquess," or " my Lady Marquess of 
Pembroke." Her sister Mary too, though mar- 
ried, is called Lady Mary Rochford. Rochford was 
the title of their father when elevated to the Earldom 
of Wiltshire, and was then borne by their brother 
George, who having become involved in his royal 
sister's supposed crime, died, like her, upon a scaffold. 
Before these proofs of the esteem in which Anne 
Boleyn was held by Henry are contrasted with her 
subsequent fate, it is impossible to avoid reflecting on 
the little regard which was then paid to the virtuous 
Katherine. That her name should be but twice men- 
tioned speaks volumes on her secluded situation ; and 
whilst all that wealth and power could command 
were lavished on the new favourite, the magnanimous 
wife was equally neglected by her husband, his satel- 
lites, and the world. Remorse seems, however, at 



INTRODUCTORY REMARKS. XXXV11 

length to have touched Henry's heart, for a few years 
after her death, namely, in November, 1539, the 
following entry occurs in the " Book of Quarterly 
Payments," in the Library of the Royal Society. 

(t Item, to Mrs. Blanch Twyford, by the Lord 
Privy Seal's letter, for her long and painful service 
done unto the Princess Dowager, by way of the 
King's reward 661. \3s. 4 d." 

Mrs. Twyford was bequeathed 10/. by Katherine's 
will. 

The Princess, afterwards Queen, Mary, is fre- 
quently noticed, but all which we learn is, that she 
was ill in June or July, 1531, and apparently again in 
March, 1532 ; and that from 10/. to 20/. were occa- 
sionally given to her for pocket-money, or to be distri- 
buted in charity. The Duke of Richmond, Henry's 
natural son, is also spoken of ; as well as his niece, the 
Lady Margaret Douglas, daughter of the Earl of An- 
gus, but she is here called Lady Margaret Anguishe, 

A few entries are strongly indicative of the super- 
stition of the age ; the most striking of which are the 
King's offerings to the images of our Lady at Calais, 
Boulogne, Dover, AValsingham and of the Pue ; and 
of persons being " touched for the evil," to whom 
22/. Qs. 6d. were paid in three years, each having 
received 7s. 6d., and which proves the number 
" touched" in that period to have been fifty-nine. 
They came wherever his Majesty was, whether in 
town, or on his progresses, and even at Calais. 

A few entries require to be separately noticed, 
as well as being referred to in the index ; namely, 



XXXV111 INTRODUCTORY REMARKS. 

the PRESENTS brought to the King, the PRICES OF 
LABOUR, SERVANTS' WAGES and LIVERIES, the VALUE OF 
LAND, HOUSE RENT, and the different kinds of MONEY 
which are mentioned. 

Upon the presents brought, few remarks are 
required, for it will at once be seen that they chiefly 
consisted of articles of food of every description, 
including fish, poultry, game, baked lampreys, swans, 
pies, fruit, meat, puddings, brawn, cranes, birds ; of 
dogs, horses, foxes, hawks, deer, mules, wild boars, 
and on one occasion, a lion ; of fishing-rods, whistles, 
wood-knives, &c. and indeed whatever was then in 
common use. 

Nor were these offerings sent only by the higher 
classes of society ; even the poorest of Henry's sub- 
jects presented him with something which they 
fancied would be acceptable to his palate. The 
bringer uniformly received a gratuity " in re- 
ward" proportionate to the value of the gift ; thus, 
the German who brought a lion was paid6/. \5s. 4d. ; 
he who brought a stag, 20<y. ; Lady Sidney's servant 
for bringing quince pies, 6s. Sd. ; and Dyrick's wife 
of Greenwich received the same sum for a capon and 
chickens. Similar gratuities were given to the gar- 
deners of the king's different seats for bringing fruit 
and herbs ; and as no gift was too contemptible to 
be accepted, the money thus paid "in reward" 
sometimes exceeded the value of the donation. 
In most cases these offerings were doubtlessly ten- 
dered as testimonies of respect, but in many the 
* reward" was, perhaps, the real motive. As the 



INTRODUCTORY REMARKS. XXXIX 

index contains a reference to every thing presented 
to Henry, it is needless to enlarge on the subject. 

Of the PRICE OF LABOUR the best evidence, besides 
the wages of servants, which will be more particularly 
noticed, are the sums paid for different articles pur- 
chased. We learn, also, that two men in July, 
1530, were paid 13s. 4<d. for ten days' work in mow- 
ing, i. e., Sd. a-day each. In February, 1532, the 
hire of seven horses, and the expenccs of the same 
number of men for sixteen days, sent into Wales, and 
other places, at Is. Sd. per day for each man, amounted 
to 91. 6s. Sd. 9 and in July in the same year I/, was paid 
for the hire of ten men for three days, in drawing 
the fish ponds at Ampthill, at Sd. a-day each. 

The WAGES OF SERVANTS differed of course ac- 
cording to their situations ; those of a Falconer were 
generally a groat a day, and he was allowed one 
penny a day for the food of each hawk intrusted to 
his care ; but those of Nicholas Clamp, one of the 
principal falconers, were 10/. per annum. A Hunts- 
man received 35s. 5d. a quarter, and as well as most 
of the other servants, he had 4d. per day for his 
board wages. The allowance for the board of the 
boys of the stable was Is. Sd. per week each; and 
of the boys that " run the King's geldings," or as 
they are sometimes called, " the King's riding boys," 
2s. a week each, whilst on one occasion we find six days' 
meals for them paid for at the rate for each of them 
five pence a day. The keeper of the Barbary horse 
was allowed 1$. Sd. per week for his board, his wages 
being 4/. a year ; the Hen-taker was however better 



xl INTRODUCTORY REMARKS. 

paid, as he received 45s. Id. a quarter. The re- 
gular wages of the King's watermen were 10s. a 
quarter ; but it would appear that they were paid 
extra upon every occasion when they were employed. 
Sexton the Fool's, servant's wages, were 15s. a 
quarter. The gardeners of York Place and of 
Beaulie, or New Hall, in Suffolk, received about 
1 2/. per annum ; the gardener of Greenwich 20/. a 
year ; and the gardeners of Windsor and Wanstead 
4/. a year. 

Of the VALUE OF LAND, only one entry affords 
positive information. It relates to land bought to 
enlarge the little Park of Windsor, for which pur- 
pose 4/. were paid for two acres of meadow ; but 
some idea may be formed on the subject from the 
following items : a farm at Greenwich, purchased for 
Anne Boleyn in February, 1531, cost 661. 1 3s. 4d. but 
unfortunately we have no idea of its extent ; in No- 
vember, 1530, fourteen loads of Hay, and six loads of 
Oats cost, with the carnage to Greenwich Park, pro- 
bably from the immediate neighbourhood, 61. 2s. Sd. ; 
and in January, 1532, is an entry of?/. 4s. 4>d. for the 
same quantity of hay at 5s. 6d. the load, and of six 
loads of oats at 9s. the load, including the carriage to 
the same place : hence we find that the carriage cost 
13s. 4d.', but in May following oats were 6s. 6d. the 
load. 

Of the RENT OF HOUSES we have the subjoined 
particulars ; that of a House for the Henchmen, or 
to use the words of the MS. " of the house where the 
Henchmen lie," was 2/. per annum, whilst that of the 



INTRODUCTORY REMARKS. xli 

one hired for Lord Rochford at Greenwich was 10/. 
a year." When some ambassadors proposed going to 
Waltham, a house was hired for them, and the owner 
was paid ^()s. ; and it appears from " the Book of 
Quarterly Payments" before mentioned, that (f the 
rent of a house in London for the standing of the 
great standards with the rich coats of the guards for 
half a year" was, 17 s. 4d. 

LIVERIES. Independently of the falconers, hunts- 
men, watermen, and other servants, the King's paint- 
ers regularly received liveries, the cost of which was 
generally 22-s. 6d. : this sum included Qs., the allow- 
ance for the badges which were affixed to them ; but 
we find Patch the Fool's man, allowed %3s. 4d. for 
his livery coat, and to others %6s. 8d, were sometimes 
given for that purpose.

* Of this sum, which is so much greater than the usual 
monthly disbursements, 1743/. 8s. were for the expences of an 
embassy to the Emperor; 1340Z. 7s. 6d. for the King's losses at 
play; 100J. paid into his own hands; 200Z, advanced to one of 
his Majesty's servants for Henry's use, and 100J. for the wages 
of the crews of two of his ships. 

f This sum included 4400L paid to Sir Bryan Tuke, evi- 
dently for public affairs ; probably embassies. 

I This includes 13331. 6s. 8d. for the payment of the " reti- 
nue" or garrison of Calais; 2490Z. Is. 4d. expended in jewels ; 
and 100Z. as a new year's gift to Anne Boleyn.

* Including 1886/. 15s. 4d. for jewellery and plate, and S33L 
for other articles to a merchant stranger, and for cloth of gold. 

f The cause of this sum being so disproportionate to either of 
the others may be explained by there being included in it 2000/. 
lent to the Cofferer of the Household until Michaelmas next fol- 
lowing ; 2000/. placed in the hands of Thomas Alvard " to be 
by him safely kept for his Graces's use and behoof;" hence 
4000Z. of it cannot be considered to have been spent, a remark 
which also applies to a few other entries ; and 2000J. for the 
King's buildings at Westminster. 

t In this month Henry's interview with Francis the First, at 
Calais, occurred, and which accounts for the increased expendi- 
ture. 

Of this sum 3587/. 17s. Sd. were paid for jewellery. 



xliv 

Besides pounds, shillings, pence, &c. the follow- 
ing coins are frequently mentioned, an account of 
the value of which between 1529 and 1532, may be 
acceptable : 

ANGELS.' A gold coin of the value of 7s. 6d. 

ANGELLOTS, ~ or ANGELET, is described to have been 
a half-angel, current for 3s. 9d. ; but in the only place 
where it is mentioned in these Accounts, it must have been 
inserted by a mistake of the writer for dngel, as eighteen 
Angellotes are said to have amounted to 6li. 15s. i. e. 7s. 6d. 
each. 

CROWNS.* A silver coin generally worth 5s. ; but all 
the entries in which it is mentioned prove that its value 
was then but 4s. 8d. 

CROWNS of the ROSE. Gold pieces coined by Henry 
the Eighth in 1526 : they were current for 4s. 6d. 

CROWNS OF THE SUN. 5 French gold coins, so called 
from the Mint mark. They were current in this country 
for 4s. 6d. 

RIALS, OR ROYALS. A gold coin then worth 11s. 3d. 
a half and quarter real or royal were of proportionate 
value. 

SOVEREIGNS.? -A gold coin of the value of 22s. 6d. 
from 1518 to 1534; after which they were current for 20s. 
The only entry in which they are mentioned is of a person 
having in 1531 borrowed llli. 5s. in " Souferayns," i. e. 
ten sovereigns, for the King.

Almayne, to a gentleman of, 178. 

Alvard Thomas, 96, 116, 199, 
228,231. 

This appears to be the same per- 
son who is sometimes called 
Thomas Alford. See Alford. He is 
supposed by Mr. Ellis to have 
been keeper of Cardinal Wolsey's 
wardrobe, and which opinion is 
confirmed by the entry in p. 116. 
A very interesting letter from him 
to Cromwell in 1529, detailing the 
particulars of the last interview 
between Wolsey and the king, has 
been printed by Mr. Ellis, and also 
by Mr. Singer. If the conjecture 
be correct that he was the indivi- 
dual who is noticed in other parts 
of the book by the name of Alvord 
and Alford, it is manifest that 
after the Cardinal's decease he 
held an office of trust under the 
king. 

Amadas Master Robert, 97, 104, 
bis, 188. 

Apparently a jeweller. 
Ambassador, the Pope's, 9. 
Ambassador, to a doctor, being 
nephew to the bishop, who 
was ambassador here, 49. 
From the manner in which this 
payment is mentioned it may be 
inferred that it was a gratuity to 
the individual, in consequence of 
his relationship to the ambas- 
sador. 

Ambassadors, paid for the rent 
of a house intended for them,

bouse was engaged for the use of

they evidently did not occupy it. 

Ambassadors, to servants of, 1 04, 

106, 135. 

Ambassador of France, 106. 
Ambassadors of Hungary, for 

the expenses of the, 160. 

The only embassy from Hungary 
noticed by Hall was in March 
1527, when the Count of Otton- 
brough, JohnBurgrave, and others 
had an audience of the King at 
Greenwich. After which, thatChro- 
nicler says, " they were well 
cherished and diverse tymes re- 
sorted to the courte and had greate 
chere and good rewardes, and so 
the 3rd. of Maie next ensuying 
they toke their leave and departed 
homeward." If this entry related 
to them, it is evident that they 
were on one occasion received by 
Henry at Grafton. 

Ambassador, money paid to the 
Scotch, 250. 

Like the gratuity to the relation 
of the ambassador, in p. 49, this 
appears to have been a present. 

Ambreys, eight cupboards, some, 
with dmbreys and some with- 
out, 93. 
" A cuppborde of waynscote with 

ambries." Hart. MSS. 1419, 

f. 55. This word is supposed to 
have meant originally, a little 
purse wherein money was put for 
the poor, and at length was used 
for any hutch or close place to keep 
meat left after meals ; a cupboard 
for keeping cold victuals. Todd's 
Johnson. It is evident however from 
the manner in which the word is 
here used that it was part of a 
cupboard rather than the cupboard 
itself, though it might have been 
appropriated, as a sort of safe, for 
the keeping of cold meat. Mr. 
Markland suggests that in the 
present instance " ambreys meant 
cupboards within cupboards, or 
places of more secure conceal- 
ment." 

Ambrose, a painter, 221. See 
" Painter." 

Ampthill. See Antill. 



Amsham Richard, 70. 
Apparently a draper. 

Anchor for an, for the king's 
boat, 262. 

The small sum paid for an anchor, 
a table, and a sail, five shillings, 
is worthy of attention as shewing 
the value of such articles at the 
period. 

Andrew, the Italian friar to, 117, 
128. 

Angell John, the jeweller, 139. 

Angling rods given to the king, 
65, 240. 

The proof which these entries af- 
ford that Henry the Eighth was 
an angler, must interest the dis- 
ciples of Isaac Walton. ButHenry 
was not the only English monarch 
who was attached to the pursuit, 
Charles the Second, as well as his 
present Majesty having frequently 
sought relief from the cares of state 
in that tranquil amusement. 

Anguisshe Lady Margaret, 98, 
183, 281. 

Earl of, 180, 247. 

Archibald Douglas, 6th Earl of 
Angus, in Scotland, who, in 1514, 
married Margaret queen dowager 
of Scotland and sister of Henry 
the Eighth, from whom he was 
divorced before 1526. Angus had 
find into England and placed him- 
self under the protection of Henry, 
who, in I5o2, settled an annuity of 
1000 marks upon him ; and he 
remained in England until the 
death of James, King of Scotland. 
The Earl died in 1556, Lady 
Margaret Angus was evidently the 
issue of that marriage, and con- 
sequently the king's niece. She 
was at the time, when some pocket 
money was given her, little more 
than fifteen years old. This dis- 
tinguished woman was the mother 
of Henry Lord Darnley, father of 
King James the First, and pro- 
genitrix of every subsequent mo- 
narch of this country. 

Annys or Ans Vincent, a jewel- 
ler, 218, 220. 

Anservis, a friar at Guildford, 63.

Ansley Bryan, 103. 

Apparently a tradesman.

Ansley Anthony. 134, 183. 193, 
283. 

All the entries in which this per- 
son's name occurs relate to the ex- 
pences of playing at tennis, hence 
it may be inferred that he was the 
keeper of the ground, or perhaps 
the marker. 

Anthony Anthony, 161, 179. 
A person of these names was Mas- 
ter of the Ordnance to Henry the 
Eighth, and made the celebrated 
drawing of the " Henry Grace de

Anthony Mark, 109, 157, 165. 
Apparently a Venetian merchant. 

Anthony a Sackbut, 174. 

Anticks, for two brought to the 
king, 226. 

Two buffoons, or two grotesque 
figures, might be meant by this 
.entry, for Shakspeare seems to use 
the word in both senses, " We 
can contain ourselves were he the 
veriest antick in the world." In- 
duction, Taming the Shrew. <( In- 
deed three such antics do not 
amount to a man." Hen. V. act Hi. 
sc. 2. Dr. Meyrick, however, with 
more probability, suggests that it 
referred to " two antiques," the 
taste " for articles of that descrip- 
tion being then at its height in 
England, as it had been previously 
in Italy, on the revival of the 
arts." In old inventories, " one 
antick head piece," " one antick 
armour," often occur. Milton also, 
says, 

"Antick pillars massy proof."

Ampthill, in the hundred of Red- 
bornstoke, in Bedfordshire. In 
1441, William Beauchamp, Lord 
St. Amand, possessed it in right of 
his wife, and sold it to Sir John 
Cornwall Lord Fanhope, one of 
the heroes of Agincourt, and who, 
according to " Leland, builded the 
castelle of Antehill of such spoils 
as it is said he won in France." 



In 1453 Henry Duke of Exeter, 
son of Fanhope's wife, by her first 
husband, entered into a bond of 
6000 marks to abide by the arbitra- 
tion of Sir Thomas Bourchier re- 
specting the manor of Ampthill and 
some other estates. In 1524, 
Roger de Grey Earl of Kent, alie- 
nated it to the Crown. It was made 
an honor by act of Parliament, the 
preamble to which states, that it 
was Henry the Eighth's intention 
" to erect, build, and edifie upon 
his grace's manor of Ampthill, 
sumptuous, stately, beautiful, and 
princely buildings." Ampthill has 
derived a mournful interest from its 
having been the residence of the 
unhappy Katherine, during the 
early part of the proceedings rela- 
tive to her divorce, and she was 
cited from thence to attend the 
Commissioners at Dunstable. 
Henry was evidently at Ampthill 
in August 1530, September 1531, 
and July 1532. Mr. Lysons, says, 
no account of the manor is to be 
found during several subsequent 
reigns. The palace was allowed to 
go to decay. James the First be- 
stowed the honor on the Earl of 
Kelly, but it soon reverted to the 
Crown. The custody of the Great 
Park was granted to Lord Bruce 
in 1613, and his descendants be- 
came lessees of it, in whom it 
continued until 1788, when the 
lease was purchased by the Duke 
of Bedford, and it wase exchanged 
in 1800 to the late Earl of Upper 
Ossory. In the 17th century a 
family of Nicholls were lessees of 
Ampthill Great Park, and after 
the Restoration it was given by 
Charles the Second to Mr. John 
Ashburnham. In 1720, his de- 
scendants sold it to Lord Fitz- 
William, from whom it was pur- 
chased, in 1736, by LadyGowran, 
grandmother of its late owner, the 
Earl of Upper Ossory, who died 
in 1818. That nobleman erected 
a column, in 1770, on the scite of 
Ampthill castle, upon which are 
inscribed the following beautiful 
lines by Horace Walpole. 

" In days of yore here Ampthill's 

towers were seen, 
The mournful refuge of an in- 
jur'd queen ;

From the following passage in

[Wolsey] fell sore sick that he was 
likely to die. Wherof the king 
being advertised was very sorry 
therefore, and sent Doctor Buttes, 
his grace's physician, unto him, 
to see in what estate he was." 
Cavendish then gives a conversa- 
tion between Henry and the Doc- 
tor on the Cardinal's illness. Vol. i. 
pp. 220, 1, 2. There is also in 
that valuable work an engraving 
of a contemporary illumination, 
representing Butts receiving tokens 
of favour from Ann Boleyn for 
Wolsey. Dr. Butts is honourably

relative to the divorce, applied to 
Latimer for his opinion and that 
of his friends upon the abstruse 
points in dispute, and finding them 
favourable to his wishes, brought 
Latimer with him to Court. It is 
possible that the entry in question 
referred to that circumstance ; but 
it is most probable from the words 
of it that Latimer and the other 
scholars were afterwards sent for, 
instead of accompanying Butts.

The use of Cards in England was 
very common long before the 
period here alluded to, and it is 
only necessary to refer those who 
wish for ample information, to 
Mr. Singer's interesting inqui- 
ries on the subject. The following 
notices had however escaped his. 
researches, though one of them is 
alluded to in a letter in the ap- 
pendix to his work. In the 1 Ed- 
ward IV. 1461, it was enacted, 
" that noo lord nor other personne 
of lower astate condicionor degree, 
whatsoever he be, suffer any 
Dicyng or pleiyng at Garden 
within his hous or elles where 
he may be let it, of any of his 
servauntes or other oute of the 
xij dayes of Cri&tmasse, and yf 
any presume to doo the contrarie 
at any tyme that he avoyde hym 
oute of his hous and service." 
It is then provided that, "noon 
Hosteler, Tavener, Vitailler, Arti- 
ficer or Housholder or other use 
any such play or suffre to be used 
any such play in their houses or 
elleswhere upon payne of prisone- 
ment and other arbitrarie at the 
kynges wille." Rot. Parl. vol. 5, 
p. 488. In the 3 and 4 Edw. IV.

were forbidden to be imported and

the 1 2th and 1 4th years of the same 
monarch, in a statute respecting 
the scarcity of bow staves it is 
said, " that the occupation of

Cardinal, a servant of the, 103. 
It is too generally known to re- 
quire repetition, that when Wolsey 
fell into disgrace, the king seized 
upon all his effect. This item in- 
forms us that the servant who 
brought the Cardinal's chariot 
horses received 20s. 

's goods, the expenses 

of a ship for bringing the, 112, 
This entry must refer to the ex- 
penses of bringing such part of the 
Cardinal's effects as were either 
at York or Winchester ; but most 
probably the former, in which case 
it may be concluded that they were 
shipped at Hull. 

-, to Sir William King- 



ston for his expenses when he 
was sent to bring up the, 115. 
Sir William Kingston was sent 
by Henry to bring up, or in fact 
to take the Cardinal into custody, 
in November 1530, and found 
him at Sheffield Park, under 
the surveillance of the Earl of 
Shrewsbury. The particulars of 
his interview and subsequent 
proceedings, until death released 
his prisoner from the fangs of 
his tyrannical master, on Tues- 
day the 29th of that month, are 
fully related by Cavendish. Ed . 
Singer, vol. i. p. 308, et seq. King- 
ston's expenses on that journey 
were, it seems, 411. 10s. lOd. ; but 



which were not paid him until 
the ensuing March.

This entry must have referred to 
a transaction which took place 
many months before.

We learn from this entry that Ed- 
ward Lloyd, a person belonging 
to the king's wardrobe, was 
entrusted with the charge of all 
the Cardinal's goods. See also 
the item on the subject in p. 11 2, 
which has just been noticed. 

Carew Sir Nicholas, 1 19, bis. 

A Knight of the Garter, Master 
of the Horse, and Lieutenant of 
Calais. He was, says the most 
elegant of living biographers, 
" Henry's constant companion in 
all the splendid and romantic 
sports of his court, administered 
successfully to his pleasures, and 
was not without some secret 
share in his councils." Lodge's 
Illustrious Portraits. Carew, how- 
ever, like so many of his con- 
temporaries, afterwards incurred 
the royal displeasure, and that 
displeasure was, in his case too, 
but the prelude to disgrace and 
death. He was arrested upon a 
suspicion of high treason, and 
beheaded on the 3rd March, 1 539. 
He married Elizabeth, the sister 
of Sir Francis Bryan, who has been 
before mentioned in these notes, 
by whom he left issue. Whether 
it was this lady or her mother-in- 
law, Magdalen, daughter of Sir 
Robert Oxenbridge, widow of Sir 
Richard Carew, who is alluded to 
in the following entry, is not 
certain, but most probably the 
latter.

in May, 1552.

Cellar, Serjeant of the, 24, 32, 
113, 115,190,216,278. 
Only two of these entries relate to 
expenses connected with this in- 
dividual's official situation. The 
others were payments of money 
lost to him by the king at dice, 
cards, and bowls, excepting on 
one occasion, when money was 
paid him to be His Majesty's 
partner at one of these games. 
It is thus manifest that he en- 
joyed a large share of the king's 
personal favour. His name has 
not been precisely ascertained. 
Richard Hill, whose widow remar- 
ried Sir John Mason, Chancellor 
of the Duchy of Lancaster, was 
Serjeant of the Cellar in this reign, 
but in what years is uncertain.

place, as the hook of a scabbard 
by which it sticks in the belt ; the 
point by which a buckle is held to 
the back-strap ;" also, " a brass or

Chariot horses, brought, 103. 
Doctor Percy in his notes on 
The Northumberland Household 
Book conjectures that a chariot 
" bore no resemblance to the 
modern carriage of that name, nor 
was intended for the same use, 
but was simply a large waggon 
drawn by six or seven of the 
stronger kind of horses, called, 
on that account, ' large trotting 
horses.' " Mr. Markland, in his 
dissertation on Carriages in Eng- 
land, Archtfnlogia, vol. xx. p. 405, 
coincides with the view taken of 
the point by Bishop Percy, and 
has cited several proofs in con- 
firmation of it. Unfortunately the 
entry in question throws no light 
on the point, for the words " the 
chariot horses," might be used in 
the modern acceptation or in that of 
these gentlemen, who are however 
borne out in their opinion by the 
authorities which they have ad- 
duced, and which are farther sup- 
ported by the will of Bartholomew 
Lord Burghersh, in 1369, who 
speaks of the " chariot ' which 
shall carry his corpse to the grave. 
Humphrey, Earl of Hereford, in 
1861, left legacies to his " vj 
charetters."

" Chast greyhounds," the king's 
brought, 58, 174. 
What was meant by the king's 
chaste greyhounds is difficult to 
explain. That certain part of the 
greyhounds should be confined to 
perpetual chastity, is not a little 
curious, if such was the fact ; but 
might not the word chaste have 
been used for " chace," i. e. grey- 
hounds kept for the sole purposes 
of coursing, as distinguished from 
those which were admitted to the 
parlour, and to the presence of 
their royal master 1

hold to Edward the Sixth. In the 
12th Hen. VIII. he was one of 
the Challengers against all gentle- 
men in feats of arms for thirty 
days, at the meeting of the Cloth 
of Gold, and as is evident from 
one of these entries, was fre- 
quently admitted to the society, 
and stood high in the favour of 
Henry, who it would seem, from 
the next entry, stopped at his 
house in Kent, on his road to 
Calais, in 1582. He died in 1559.

Though the word appears to be so 
written, and is therefore thus 
printed, there can be little doubt 
from the context and from other 
entries, that it was meant to be 
" oots," oats.

Cottons were, but all these entries 
relate to money won by them of 
the king at shooting.

Cromer Doctor, 137. 
Cromwell Master, 101, 224, 261, 
267, ter, 268. 

This individual was afterwards the 
celebrated Earl of Essex. It is 
well known that he was taken into 
Henry's service on the fall of his 
former master, Wolsey, and was 
Knighted in the year when his 
name first occurs in these accounts, 
after which time he made rapid pro- 
gress in the King's favour. These 
entries respecting Cromwell add in 
no other way to what is recorded of 
him ,than as they confirm the opinion 
that he was frequently employed 
on services which were of a secret 
nature. The one relating to the 
payment of the king's tomb will be 
more fully noticed elsewhere, and 
in June, 1532, we find him pre- 
senting Henry with " Sucado and 
marmalade ;" but the most re- 
markable entries are of large sums 
paid to him " by the king's com- 
mandment," without mentioning 
for what purposes. Indeed, on 
one occasion, there is a particular 
appearance of mystery in the dis- 
bursement. It is a payment to 
the king's jeweller of 46/. 13s. 4d., 
" Maister Cromwell knowing to 
what use it should be employed 
unto." The entries alluded to 
all occur in October, 1532, and 
the sums paid to him amounted to 
826/. 6s. Sd., which may be sup- 
posed to have been privately ex- 
pended at Boulogne, in relation to 
the interview with the French Mo- 
narch ; but it must be remembered 
that Henry is, by some writers, 
supposed to have married Anne 
Boleyn early in the November fol- 
lowing ; hence, it is possible that 
these payments were in some way 
connected with that event.

Cupboards, for, with and without 
Ambreys, 93. 

This entry is more particularly 
noticed under " Ambrys," but a 
few words will here be said on 
the word " Cupboard." Some 
grounds exist for considering that 
it formerly meant a very different 
piece of furniture than a " case 
with shelves," as Dr. Johnson de- 
scribes it, and asit is explained by 
Archd. Nares. The entry referred 
to in these accounts, it is true, ap- 
pears to have been of an article 
resembling a modern cupboard ; 
but it is by no means certain that 
such is the fact. From the follow- 
ing passage it would seem that the 
word was used for a kind of closet. 
Speaking of Lord Shrewsbury 
having appeared before the Privy 
Council of Queen Elizabeth to 
vindicate himself from some 
charges brought against him, a 
writer of the period says, ' Yet, 
for that he did so instantly re- 
quire to have their aunswere to 
that which he had propounded, 
his Lordship was desired to with- 
drawe himselfe from the table to 
the cupbord, which he did, and so 



uppon some consultacion amonge 
the reste of their Lordships then 
sittinge, his Lordship beinge 
agayn called to his place, it was," 
&c. Lodge's Illustrations, vol. ii. 
p. 298. It could scarcely have 
been meant that Shrewsbury mere- 
ly quitted the Council table and 
went to where the cupboard was 
placed, at a distant part of the 
room. The following extract 
however does not support the 
opinion, that a cupboard was a 
closet ; but it could not have re- 
sembled the modern piece of fur- 
niture of that name. Cavendish, 
speaking of the chamber in which 
Cardinal Wolsey died, says " the 
windows being close shut, having 
wax lights burning upon the cup- 
board," &c, vol. i. p. 313. It is 
quite certain that an article called 
a cupboard was sometimes move- 
able. Robert Frevyll, by his will 
dated in 1521, gives his son John, 
among other articles, " a stone 
cobard in the hall." Testament* 
Vetusla, vol. ii. p. 575. Hall thus 
uses the word. " The Dutchmen 
bring over iron, tymber, lether, 
and weynskot ready wrought, as 
nayles, lockes, basketts, cupbordes, 
stools, tables, chestes, gyrdels with 
poyntes," &c. p. 587. In the ac- 
count of the furniture of Henry the 
Eighth's palaces, in the Harleian 
MS., 1419. the word " cuppbord" 
frequently occurs ; and the fol- 
lowing extract supports the opi- 
nion, that it did not resemble the 
article now known by that name. 
" Item, one large cuppbord carpet 
of grene clothe of gold, with 
workes lyned with bockeram, con- 
teyning in lengthe three yards iij 
q'ters, and three bredthes of the 
same cloth of gold." f. SO.

Dice has been a favourite amuse- 
ment in this country for many cen- 
turies, and Mr. Singer, in his inte- 
resting volume on Playing Cards, 
gives many curious particulars on 
the subject. Under the word 
" Cards" ante, extracts from the 
statutes restricting the use of them 
in the reign of Edward IV. have 
been inserted, to which the follow- 
ing from the Rolls of Parliament, 
of the 2 Hen. IV, 1410, may be an 
acceptable addition. The Com- 
mons prayed that servants and 
labourers who offended against 
the statute prohibiting them to 
play at " Coites, dys, gettre de 
Peer, Kayles, and autres tieux 
Jeueo," should be enforced ; to the 
enactments in which that Parlia- 
ment added a punishment of six 
days, whilst such Mayors as ne- 
glected to enforce it were to be 
fined 20s. and Constables 6s. Sd. 
Vol. iii. p. 643. In the 17 Ed. I V. 
1477, a statute was enacted pro- 
hibiting " newe ymagined pleys 
called Closshe, Keyles, half Bowie, 
Handynand Handowte, and Queke

Skelton's Poems, " Why come ye 

not to Court," Ed. 1736, p. 175. 

The above extract presents us with 
the surname of Domingo, states 
that he was a Lombard, and had 
been under the professional care 
of Dr. Balthazar. Most of the 
entries in which he is mentioned 
relate to payments of money that 
he had won from the king at cards 
and dice, and which in less than 
three ? years amounted to above 
62CM. As the circumstance is al- 
luded to by Skelton, the accuracy 
of that part, at least, of his account 
of Domingo is established. He 
was, like Palmer and others, one 
of Henry's " diverting vagabonds," 
and seems to have accompanied His 
Majesty wherever he went, for we 
find that he was with him at Calais 
in October, 1532. 

Dompue, to one who rode two 
horses at once, 218. 

This word does not occur in any

positive as to its meaning, a con- 
jecture may be hazarded, and if er : 
roneous perhaps forgiven " Domi 
ter un cheval" is to break in a 
horse. Might not then a Dompue 
or Dompne, for it is doubtful in 
which way the word is spelt, mean 
a horse breaker, and which would 
fully agree with the sense in which 
it is here used ?

Exeter, Marquess of, 61, 62, bis, 
149, 152. 

Henry Courtenay, eleventh earl of 
Devon, who was elevated to the 
Marquisate of Exeter in 1525. This 
distinguished nobleman was the 
son of William, Earl of Devon, by 
Katherine, youngest daughter of 
King Edward the Fourth, and was 
consequently first cousin to Henry, 
a relationship which placed him 
much too near to the crown to be 
compatible with his safety ; and, in 
1588, he was suspected of high 
treason. Suspicion was then equi- 
valent to guilt, and the Marquess 
was beheaded on Tower Hill, on 
the 9th of January 1539. " Of 
all .victims of the jealous tyrant," 
the elegant Gibbon justly remarks, 
" the Marquess of Exeter is one of 
the most noble and guiltless." The 
entries in these accounts throw no 
light upon his character, nor are 
they of much interest, for they con- 
sist merely of rewards to his ser- 
vants, or bringing presents of 
hounds to the King.

Elmley.

These items afford much informa- 
tion on the value of falcons at the 
period. Two falcons and a gos- 
hawk cost 31. Five falcons and a 
tarsell were worth 8/. ; and five 
falcons 71. 6s. 8d. ; so that the

Falcons and hawks appear to have 
been the most frequent, as well as 
most valued presents, from one 
prince to another. These accounts 
present two instances of the kind, 
the one of the payment of 28/. 6*. 8d 
to the bearer of a cast of falcons 
from the Duke of Ferrara, and the 
other of a gift of several to Henry, 
from Francis the First, at Calais. 
Upon that occasion falconers seem 
also to have been transferred to 
Henry's service ; for we find a pay- 
ment of 21. 2s. 8d. for their ex- 
pences, (p. 275) whilst some idea 
may be formed of the number of 
birds given to Henry from the item 
of 2/. 18s. lOd. for the expences of 
them for one month only. " The 
best falconers were Flemings, and 
even those who have attended 
hawks in England, until a late 
period, were procured from a par- 
ticular district of Flanders." M.*

The subject of " Fools" has been 
so ably discussed by Mr. Douce in 
his Illustrations of Shakespeare, that 
it is unnecessary to say more on it 
here than what the entries in these 
accounts suggest. The only names 
of Henry's foolswhich have reach- 
ed us are.William Somers, Sexton, 
and Williams. Sexton is however 
the only one of them who is men- 
tioned in these pages, unless the 
others were described under the 
names of" Gnat and Little Guil-

INDEX AND NOTES, 



Ham of the Privy Chamber," of 
whom there are numerous entries, 
though the honourable addition of 
" the King's Fool," never once 
occurs to their names. Those to 
whom that appellation is given are 
" Patch and Sexton," and the 
manner in which they are spoken 
of is strongly corroborative of Mr. 
Douce's opinion, that " Patch" 
was another designation for" " a 
Fool." Fn one page (86,) we 
find " Patch the King's Fool," and 
Sexton both noticed. But this by 
no means contradicts the idea that 
they were names for the same indi- 
vidual. Sexton, Mr. Douce says, 
was presented to Henry by Cardi- 
nal Wolsey, and the anecdote re- 
lated by Cavendish of his having 
given another Fool, who, it has 
been observed, was called Wil- 
liams, to the king after his disgrace, 
and the poor wretch's attachment 
to tis master is well known. It is 
manifest from these accounts that 
the Fool had a man to wait 
upon him ; for we find John Emy- 
son frequently noticed as " the 
man that waits or attends upon 
Sexton," " the keeper of the King's 
Fool," " Sexton's man," and in 
others, " Sexton's servant." All 
payments for the fool's food, tra- 
velling expences, &c., for it seems 
he accompanied Henry wherever 
he went, were made to his servant 
or keeper, whose wages were ij d. 
a day, (p. 45,) or about 3/. per an- 
num (p. 193,) and he was allowed, 
like the falconers and huntsmen, 
22s. 6d. for his livery. Emyson 
appears however either to have 
died or to have been dismissed 
from his occupation before August 
1532, for in that month, as well as 
in the October following, Green is 
described to have been Sexton's 
servant, but Skynner evidently at- 
tended him on his journey to Calais 
with Henry, in November in that 
year, and who is also mentioned 
as waiting upon him as early as 
September 1580, though Emyson 
was his keeper in December, 
1529. It is remarkable that 
every entry relating to the Fool 
tehould be for his clothes, food, or 
other personal expences, and that 
he should never once have received 
a gratuity or " reward," of which 



there are so many examples to 
others. It has been conjectured 
that the witty sallies of these de- 
graded creatures were frequently 
rewarded by handsome presents, 
but no proof of the fact in relation 
to Sexton occurs. Besides Emyson 
we find " Thomas the Jester'' 
sometimes mentioned, who seems 
to have been more fortunate than 
" the Fool," for he received 20s. on 
one occasion, and 22s. Gd. on 
another, " in reward;" whilst 
Henry gave the French king's jester 
at Calais the large sum of 9/ 6s. 8d. 
on the day the King of Navarre, 
the Cardinal of Lorrain, &c. dined 
with him. According to the or- 
dinances of the Royal Household 
made at Ehham,in the 17th Henry 
VIII. the king's Fool was allowed 
one hackney.

France King of, notices about his 
children, 59, bis. 

Francis the First, king of France, 
his wife and children, were taken 
prisoners by the emperor at the 
siege of Pavia in 1525. The queen 
and the children remained in his 
hands until 1529, when it was 
agreed by the treaty of Cambray 
that they should be delivered to 
Francis on the payment of two 
millions of crowns. The money 
was soon raised, and Hall gives us 
a circumstantial account of the 
execution of the treaty, from which 
it appears that the Spanish com- 
missioners met the Great Master of 
France at Bayonne, in March 
1530, but the former objected [to 
part of the coin on account of the 
weight, and therefore removed the 
children from Fountroby into 
Spain. The affair being thus de- 
layed from March until June, 
Henry sent Sir Francis Bryan to 
pledge himself as security for the 
payment, and on the 1st of July 
queen Eleanor and the children 
were placed in the Great Mas- 
ter's hands. In July, Hall adds, 
" fyers were made in London and 
divers other places for the same 
consideracion and cause ;" and it 
is worthy of remark, as a curious 
example of the change in the na- 
tional policy, that precisely the 
same rejoicings took place when 
they fell into the emperor's power 
after the battle of Pavia a few years 
before. Hall, pp. 693, 772. From 
these accounts we learn that news 
of the event reached London on 
the 8th of July, 1530, by a French- 
man dispatched from the Great 
Master, and that on the 9th ano- 
ther messenger, probably from Sir 
Francis Bryan, arrived with simi- 
lar information. Each of them re- 
ceived the same sum for their 
journey, namely, 23J. 6s. 8d.

known lines written on the mar- 
riage of Charles Brandon with the 
Queen Dowager of France, 
To Mary : 

Cloth of gold do not despise, 
To match thyself to cloth offrise. 
To Charles : 

Cloth offrise be not too bold, 
Though thou art match to cloth 
of gold. 

we might presume that frieze rarely 
formed the dress of persons of 
rank, but Jamieson in voce (Sup- 
plement) quotes from an Inventory 
of 1539, ' Ane goone offreis claith 
of gold.' In the following century 
frieze was more generally adopted. 
Fuller speaks of it as a coarse kind 
of cloth, manufactured in Wales, 
' then which none warmer to be 
worn in winter, and the finest sort 
thereof very fashionable and gen- 
tile. Prince Henry had a frieze

As in three out of the four instances 
in which this word is used it evi- 
dently referred to fantastic dresses 
or the appendages to them, it 
may be inferred that the children 
of the stable were ludicrously 
habited, and which is the more 
probable if the conjecture which 
has been hazarded be correct, that 
they were employed in riding racing 
horses. Gere was, however, some- 
times used for the ornamental parts 
of dress, for Louis XII. king of 
France, is described in a letter from 
the Earl of Worcester in 1514, as 
" devysing new collers and goodly 
gere for" the queen his bride. 
Ellis's Original Letters, second 
Series, vol. i. p. 236. Mr. Mark- 
land observes " this word, per se, 
meant clothing simply. From 
the days of Spenser to those of 
Swift, when magnificence or orna- 
ment is implied, the word is 
accompanied with some epithet ; 
thus ' gorgeous gear' in the for- 
mer, and ' glittering birth-day gear' 
in the latter. See Masking." Shak- 
speare, however, uses the word in 
the sense which it is supposed to 
be employed in the text : 

" Let us complain to them what 

fools were here 
Disguis'd like Muscovites, in 

shapeless gear." 
Love's Labour Lost, A. 5. Sc.2. 
Chaucer uses Gere for articles of 
any kind, but in one instance he 
applies it to articles of dress : 
" And for that nothing of her 

olde gere 
She shulde bring into his hous, 

he bad 
That woman should despoilen 

her right there 
Of which these ladies weren 

nothing glad 

To handle hire clothes wherin 
she was clad.

mas G re sham, the founder of the 
Royal Exchange, and, whom 
Mr. Lodge happily terms, " the 
great patriarch of commerce and 
of commercial finance." This 
Richard Gresham was a mercer in 
London, and, according to the 
same elegant writer, was " agent 
for the crown with the trading 
interest, or, as it was called, king's 
merchant, an office of the highest 
importance and trust, inasmuch as 
it united the duty of raising money 
for the royal occasions by private 
loans, with that of protecting and 
cherishing the sources from which 
they were derived." He was knight- 
ed, and became Mayor of London 
in 1537, and died "in 1548. See

that they uniformly received 7s.Gd.

period, and to poor persons, was 
very considerable. It tends also 
in a great measure to account for 
the prevalence of the custom ; for 
a more convenient superstition

sions always walked near the 
monarch's horse : a correct idea 
may be formed of their appearance 
from the representation of them 
in one of the pictures in the meet- 
ing room of the Society of Anti- 
quarians. It seems from these 
entries that they lodged in the 
house of Johnson, the master of 
the king's harge, and that the rent 
of it was 40s. per annum. Ob- 
servations on the word will be 
found in Spelman's Etymol:,

Elizabeth. His only child Eliza-

ard,was created Countess of Win- 
chelsea, by Charles the First. 

Henyngham George, 88, 132,

Apparently from the price, hang- 
ings of silk or rich stuff. A per- 
fect idea of the richness and splen- 
dour of hangings at that period, 
may be formed from the description 
of those in the palaces of Henry 
the Eighth, in the Harleian MS. 
1419, A. & B. ; whilst of those used 
in the early part of the fifteenth cen- 
tury, a full account is given in the

It does not appear who this indi- 
vidual was, but as every entry 
relating to him is of a payment for 
bringing marmelade, dates, sweet 
oranges, lemons, and ' other plea- 
sures," it may be inferred that he 
was a kind of pastry-cook.

" We cannot gather the prices of 
Horses from these accounts as 
often as it is desirable. Gilbert 
Talbot, afterwards Earl of Shrews- 
bury, in 1578, offers 33/. for two 
Fryseland Horses." Lodge's Illus- 
trations, ii, 171. There was particu- 
lar attention paid in this reign, as 



appears by several laws, to promote 
the breed of large and strong horses. 
Mr. Barrington on Statutes (p. 499) 
conjectures that Tournaments and 
other magnificent Pageantries 
being in vogue in the early part of 
this reign might have prompted 
these measures. Certainly the 
strength of the Horses would con- 
tribute to render Tournaments 
more safe to those engaged in 
them as well as heighten the ge- 
neral effect of the scene." M.

towards the end of the reign of 
Edward the First, will be found on

pear to have varied in price from 
one to ten pounds, and are minutely 
described both as to their colours

were destined. Henry the Fifth's 
chariot horses, " Chivalx de Char- 
rettz," were sold for 95/. 14s. Wd. 
Pot. Parl. vol. iii. p. 237. By sta- 
tute 11 Hen. VII. chap. xiii. it was 
prohibited to export Mares or 
Horses beyond the sea. We find 
from these payments that on one 
occasion 37/ M and on another 53'. 
were paid for horses; and that 
71. 10s. 31. 6s. Sd. and 6M3s. 4d., 
were given at different times, for 
the purchase of a horse. In 1547

The only explanation given of

in these accounts. It was evi- 
dently a payment made to the

From the appellation "Sir," being

havingbeen given to this individual, 
it would seem that he was a Priest ; 
but this conjecture cannot be re- 
conciled with his having been paid 
22s. Crf. for his livery coat, nor, per- 
haps, with the frequent bets won by 
him at shooting. In one instance 
too " his fellowes"are spoken of. It 
is, however, certain, that he was 
one of Henry's numerous minions, 
in whose society he forgot the 
cares and dignity of a sovereign.

John Lord Hussey of Sleford. Pie

being concerned in the insurrection

several children, one of whom ap- 
pears to have been born in March, 
1531, and to whom the king was 
very probably a sponsor.

Knives were worn at a very early

Lord Grey of Rotherfeild, is stated 
to have been committed, to prison 
for drawing his knife partly out of 
its sheath on William Lord Zouch, 
of Ashby. Kot.Parl.voL ii. p. 656. 
I^ong knives, or other suspicious 
arms, were forbidden to be worn 
in the city of London or Westmin- 
ster in 1351 during the sitting of 
Parliament. Ibid. p. 235. a In 1363 
the knives of trades-people and arti- 
ficers were prohibited from being 
adorned with gold or silver or 
precious stones. Rid. p. 278,^ 281, b 
and in the 3 Edw. IV. knives were 
forbidden from bein<j imported, 
Ibid. vol. 5, p. 507. Thomas Earl 
of Warwick, in 1400, speaks of 
knives for the King's coronation in 
his will ; and Chaucer's allusion to 
the Sheffield whittle is well known, 

" A Shefeld thwitel bare he in 

his hose." 

Among the expenses of Ochin and 
Martyr, in 1547, before cited, is a 
payment of 2s. 8d. for " two payer 
of Tunbridge knives." The knife 
was placed in the girdle.

Henry ordered 9/. 6s. 8d. to be 
given to the French king's jester, 
and 41. 13s. 4d. to the Cardinal's 
singers, Hal! states that the king 
of Navarre, the Cardinal of Lor- 
rain, and the Great Master and 
Admiral of France, dined with 
Henry at Calais ; and these pay- 
ments were evidently made for 
the amusement which they had 
afforded the party.

Laten, a desk garnished with, 
123. 

Laten, or Latton, was, Mr. Todd 
informs us, a mixed kind of metal, 
made of copper and calamine, said 
by some to be the old orichalc. 
The meaning of the word has, 
however, puzzled our best an- 
tiquaries. Mr. Douce says it is 
always used for brass, whilst Dr. 
Meyrick thinks it was copper gilt. 
See some Observations on the sub- 
ject in a Note to the Arch&do- 
gia, vol. xxi. pp. 261, 2. In the 
3 Edw. IV. it was prohibited to 
import " Harneys for gurdels, of 
iron, of laton, of stele, of tyn, or of 
alkamyn." Rot. Purl. vol. v. p. 
507, a whilst in the 3 Hen. IV. 
Girdlers were prohibited from gar- 
nishing girdles with stones or me- 
tal " q' de laton, baterie, feer, et 
asser." Ibid. vol. iv. p. 73. In 
the 2 Hen. VI. the Commons com- 
plained that people had made 
" diverse werkes of brauderie of 



unsuffisaunt stuff, and undwely 
wrought, as well upon velowet, 
and cloth of gold, as upon all other 
clothes of silk wrought with gold 
or silver of Cipre, and gold of Luk, 
or Spanyssh laton." Ibid. p. 255. a 
On the Rolls of the 12 and 13 
Edw. IV. we find " Basons conter- 
fete of Latyn, and two other basons 
of lot en" spoken of. Ibid. vol. vi. 
p. 37. Fabian, by his Will in 1511, 
ordered that a stone of marble 
should be laid on his grave, " about 
the borders whereof I will be fasten- 
ed aviate of laton, within that plate 
graven thies words," &c. and Lady 
Mauley, in 1438, bequeathed xx 
marks " for a marble stone with 
her portraiture thereon in copper 
or latten gilt." In the agreement 
for the tomb of the Earl of War- 
wick in the 28 Hen. VI. it is cove- 
nanted that certain parts shall be 
made of the finest latten, and to be 
gilded, and which latten was to 
cost xd. per pound. Dugdale's 
Warwick. It was used for crosses, 
candlesticks, plates for tombs, effi- 
gies, basons, &c. Testamenta Ve- 
tusta, pp. 148, 235, 261,268, 510, 
511, 610, 713. From these extracts 
it is almost certain that Latten, or 
Laton, was neither iron, steel, tin, 
alkamain, or baterie, but the conjec- 
tures of Dr. Meyrick, Mr. Douce, 
and Mr. Todd, remain uncontra- 
dicted. The metal itself still exists 
on the tomb of the Earl of War- 
wick just mentioned, hence there 
are means of settling the question.

These entries are of much interest. 
The first has been before noticed 
under CAMBRIDGE, and it is only 
requisite, in illustration of the lat- 
ter, to observe, that it is evident this 
distinguished martyr preached be- 
fore Henry on the second Sunday 
in Lent, namely the 13th March, 
1530, and was rewarded with 51. 
a sufficient proof that the king was 
pleased with his doctrines. " His

it appears, then called Ann Harris, 
Her wages were originally 10/. per 
annum, but she obtained an addi- 
tion of 6/. 13s. 4d. more on one oc- 
casion, and on another, 66s. so that 
she ultimately was paid 20/, per 
annum. She was bound to pro- 
vide " as much sweet powder, 
sweet herbes, and other sweet 
thinges as shall be necessary to be 
occupied for the sweet keeping" of 
the articles entrusted to her ; and 
it was expressly stated that she was 
to find wood and soap and every 
thing else out of her wages. Two 
" standard chests" were, however, 
delivered to her, " the one to keep 
the cleane stuff, and the other to 
keep the stuff that hath been occu-

This person, who, it is mani- 
fest, was wholly supported at the 
king's expense, and who, it may 
be consequently inferred, was one 
of his favourite minions, was the 
notorious Mark Smeton, a musi- 
cian, who was accused of criminal 
familiarity with Anne Boleyn, and 
upon whose cowardly perjury, 
chiefly, that victim was condemned. 
The best account of him is that 
given by Cavendish : 

" My father a carpenter, and 

laboured with his hand 
With the swett of his face he 

purchast his ly vyng 
For bmall was his rent, much 

lesse was his land ; 
My mother in a cottage used 



dayly spynnyng 
in wh 



Loo in what mysery was my be- 

gynnyng 
Till that gentle prynce, kyng of 

this realme 
Toke me de stercore et origens 

pauperem 

And beyng but a boy clame upp 

the hygh stage 
That bred was of naught, and 

brought to felicite 
Knew not myself, waxt proud in 

my corage 
Dysdayued my father, and wold 

not him see, 
Wherfore nowe Fortune by hir 

mutabilitie 
Hathe made so cruelly hir power 

for to stretch 
For my presumption, to dye like 

a wretch." , 



As his conduct was as dastardly 
as his birth was mean, he was put 
in irons when arrested, and after- 
wards hanged, whilst the other 
prisoners were beheaded.

Mary, the king's eldest daughter, 
afterwards queen of England. She 
was born on the 8th February, 
1515, and was consequently about 
fifteen when she is first mentioned 
in these accounts. They chiefly 
refer to sums paid her for pocket 
money, which never exceeded 20/. 
at one time, or was less than 101. 
Upon one occasion 10/. was given 
her to be distributed in charity. 
The only new facts connected with 
her life which they present are, 
that her royal Highness was ill in 
June or July, 1531, and apparently 
again in March, 1532.

A milloner of the sixteenth, was 
evidently a different sort of trades- 
man from the milliner of the nine- 
teenth century, for besides caps, 
bonnets, and gloves, he then sold 
knives, sheaths, girdles, jewels, 
&c. 

Mines, the king's at Lantrissen 
in Glamorganshire, money to 
be expended on, 69. 
That Henry interested himself in 
mining, is, the Editor presumes, 
a new fact in his character. From 
this item we learn that he worked 
a mine at Lantrissen in Wales, 
and ordered on one occasion that 
231. 16s. Gd. should be expend- 
ed on it; and on another he 
caused 40s. to be given to a miner. 
" All mines containing gold or 
silver were styled ' mines royal.' 
Of the latter the richest in Wales 
are in Cardiganshire. These were 
leased by James I. to Sir Hugh 
Middleton, and the profits enabled 
him to bring the New River from 
Ware to London ; and by Charles 
I. to Mr. Bushel, who had been in 
the service of Sir Walter Raleigh ; 
and from this source of wealth he 
raised and clothed a regiment for 
the king. The Cardiganshire mines, 
or perhaps its richest one, called 
Cwm Symlog, which yields 100 oz. 
of silver to the ton of lead, may be 
alluded to in the text." M.*

formation is afforded to what is con- 
tained in Dr. Percy's elaborate es- 
say, though they frequently corro- 
borate the statements therein. The 
frequency of these payments tend, 
however, to establish Henry's at- 
tachment to music. In the Ordi-

Eltham in the 17 Hen. VIII. we 
find that Hugh Woodhouse, the

As nearly all these entries re- 
specting Painters are noticed by

information on the subject. The 
names of those who are mentioned 
are Vincent who painted a plat 
of Hastings and Rye, for which he 
was paid 3/. 10s. ; Bartholomew 
Penne, Anthony Toto, Andrew 
Oret, and Ambrose, the Queen of 
Navarre's painter. Of Vincent, 
Mr. Walpole gives no account ; 
Ambrose, he conjectures to have 
stood in but little estimation, be- 
cause the sum given him for a pic- 
ture was only 41. 13s. 4d. but of 
Penne and Tote we have the fol- 
lowing particulars : " Penne or 
Penn is called by Vasari not 
Bartholomew but Luca Penni ; he 
was brother of Gio Francesco

Penni, a favourite and imitator of 
Raphael. He worked some time 
at Genoa and in other parts of 
Italy, whence he came into Eng- 
land, and painted several pieces 
for the king and some merchants 
here. Vertue concludes that some 
scriptural subjects which he found 
in a small room called the Confes- 
sionary, near the Chapel at Hamp- 
ton Court, particularly the Pas- 
sion, were by Penn. Vasari adds, 
that Luca Penni addicted himself 
latterly to making designs for 
Flemish engravers. Toto was 
afterwards Serjeant Painter, and 
Rymer (vol. xiv. p. 595.) gives his 
letters of Naturalization. Speak- 
ing of Ridolphi fils de Dominique 
Ghirlandaio, he says, ' Chez ;,lui 
il y avait Toto del Nuntiato, qui 
depuis s'en alia en Angleterre, 
ou il fit plusieurs ouvrages de 
peinture et d'architecture, avec 
lequel Perrin fut amitie, et a Ten- 
vie 1'un de 1'autre s'effbrcoit a bien 
faire.' But Toto's works are all 
lost or unknown ; his fame, with 
that of his associates, being ob- 
scured by the lustre of Holbein." 
Painters formed part of the royal 
Household, for besides the entries 
in these accounts of money to Toto 
and Penn for their livery coats, in 
the Ordinances for the Regulation 
of Queen Elizabeth's Household, 
" to the Serjeant Painter and other, 
to his appointment" is assigned a 
fee of 100. per annum.

word plat occurs continually in a 
similar sense. Thus in the account 
in the Harleiau MS. 1419, of furni- 
ture in Henry the Eighth's palaces, 
we find a long case for platles 
covered with vellett," " a case of 
tynne with a plat." " Certeyne 
plattes and petygreas in a Cup- 
borde," Sue. but the best idea of a 
plat is aftbrded by the plate in the 
second volume of Mr. Ellis's Se- 
cond Series of Original Letters, 
which is called " A MM of Calais." 
In the MS. from whence it is taken 
is a " Platt of the Lowe Countrye 
and Galleys, drawne in October, 37 
Henry VIII. by Thomas Pettut." 
As in the Harleian MS. 1419, the 
word," Mappesand Pictures'* oc- 
cur, it is evident that a plat differed 
from both, though it would appear 
from the engraving alluded to, that 
it partook of the character of each.

All which can be inferred on the 
subject from these entries is, that 
it was played by four or more 
persons, and that it was not in 
use at Henry's court until the end 
of the year, 1532. It is most pro- 
bable that it derived its name from 
Pope Julius the Second, who died 
in 1513, and was possibly very 
similar to our present Pope Joan.

Posset ale, for Sexton, 34. 

Archdeacon Nares says Posset was 
a dnuk composed of hot milk, cur- 
dled by some strong infusion, which 
was much in favour with our ances- 
tors both as luxury and medicine. 
"Posset ale" was probable hot milk 
curdled by ale, but whether given 
to the Fool as a "luxury" or 
" medicine" does not appear, as it 
is included in the expenses of his 
washing-, shoes, and " other neces- 
saries."

child, but the Editor has not been

about them.

Presents brought, 74, 93, 250 

Prest, 83, &c. 

This word occurs continually in 
reference to money advanced to 
servants on their wages, and clear- 
ly meant money paid to persons 
before their salaries were due. 
In the Shrewsbury Papers we find 
Lord Wharton informing the Earl 
of Shrewsbury in June, 1557, " The 
olde guanvsone not paide for their 
half yeare, ended the xiiij ofFebr. 
laste ; and for this other half year 
which shall ende the xvjth day of 
Auguste, excepte money delivered 
m preste by the layte Treasourer 
which will appear upon declaracion 
of his accompt. Hear is noo Trea- 
surer knowne, nor when they shall 
be paide." To which the Editor 



has added the following note: "This 
term, derived from pret, French, 
ready, was always applied to money 
transactions, but had various ac- 
ceptations. In military affairs prest 
or imprest money usually meant 
the gratuity by which recruits were 
retained, from whence the well 
known ^phrase, pressing into the 
service.' In this instance it sig- 
nifies the sums issued from time to 
time by the treasurer for the cur- 
rent use of the army." Lodge's 
Illustrations, vol. i. p. 237. The 
sense, however, in which this word 
is used in these accounts is derived 
from the French Prest, a loan. 
Cavendish uses it in precisely the 
same way. Speaking of Wolsey's 
pecuniary necessities he says " it 
was concluded that he should have 
by the way of prest, a thousand 
marks out of Winchester Bishop- 
rick." p. 239.

The entry relating to this indiyi- 
vidual is not a little amusing, for 
it seems that he won 2/. 5s. of the 
King by a bet that he would out- 
run his own dog. He is thus de- 
scribed by Lloyd : " His extraction 
was not noble, his estate but mean ; 
yet was his person so comely, his 
carriage so elegant, his life so 
gravely reserved and studious, and 
his embassies in France and Ger- 
many so well managed, that in 
King Edward's days he was by the 
council pitched upon as the oracle, 
whereby our agents were to be 
guided abroad ; and in Queen Eli- 
zabeth's, designed by common vote 
for the prince by whom we were to 
be governed at home. He received 
extraordinary favours, no doubt, 
so deserving he was : he wished no 
more, he was so popular ; and 
when his service was admitted to 
Her Majesty's bosom, all fancies 
but his own placed his person in 
her bed." State Worthies, Ed. 1766, 
rol.i. p. 415. Sir William died at 
Pickering House in London in 
1574, aged 58, and was buried 
under a magnificent tomb in the 
Church of St. Helen the Great and 
Less. Queen Elizabeth, accord- 
ing to his epitaph, was, " principi 
omnium illustrissimse summus offi- 
ciis devotissimus." Pennant's Lon- 
don, p. 416. A copy of Edward 
the Sixth's " Instructions to Sir 



William Pickeringe, Knt. one of 
the Gentlemen of His Highenes 
Chamber toucheing the revocations

Sir William to supplie his rome as 
residente ambassadore in Fraunce, 
dated 30th June, 1551," w pre- 
served in the Harleian MS. 353, 
f. 113.b If, as Pennant states, he 
was born in 1516, he could only 
have been sixteen years old when 
he ran a race with his dog, and 
thereby won a wager of 45s. from 
Henry, a time of life suitable to 
such an action ; but it is singular he 
should have been knighted at so 
early a period.

thus explains : " A Quarion was a 
square lump of wax with a wick in 
the centre. Round lumps of the 
same are still used in the Royal 
nursery under the name of Mor- 
tises." The word also occurs in 
the same sense in a MS. dated at 
Eltham, January, 22 Henry VIII. 
and noticed in the Arch&ologia, 
vol. iii. p. 156. " An account was 
to be taken of all fuel, wine, &c. 
and wax lights, spent in the King's 
Privy Chamber, returning to the 
chaundry all the remains of mor- 
tars, torchers, quarries, prickets,

What Relick Water was cannot be

Westminster, whose servant re- 
ceived 20s. for bringing it ; and on 
the other, a glass of it was brought 
from Windsor to Hampton Court, the 
bearer of which was paid only 12rf. 
It was probably a strong scented 
spirit, and from its name we may 
infer that its virtues were of a 
superior nature, even if they were 
not supposed to have been derived 
from some sacred object or cere- 
mony.

was created Earl of Nottingham, 
and Duke of Richmond and Somer- 
set, K. G. ; on the 26th of July 
following he was constituted Lord 
High Admiral. He married Mary, 
daughter of Thomas, Duke of Nor- 
folk, but died before consummation 
on the 24th July, 1536. When the 
Duke is first mentioned in these 
accounts, he was eleven years of 
age : arrows were then pur- 
chased for him, and his nurse is said 
to have received 40s. in reward. 
In the same year 20s. were paid

that in January 15 32 he was ill, for 
a physician was paid 40s. for visit-

Upon this item the Editor is un- 
able to throw any light. If it 
means a payment of their accus- 
tomed gratuity of 20s. each, at 
Easter, it would be intelligible, and 
it is difficult to explain it in any 
other way ; for that money should 
be paid to an individual for re- 
ceiving what was his " Right," 
seems almost absurd.

in this place. Almost all these 
entries shew the high favour in 
which he was held by Henry, for 
it is manifest from them that he 
was the King's constant com- 
panion, and was always one of 
his parties, at shooting matches, 
bowls, dice, cards, and indeed at 
every other species of amusement. 

Rochford, Lady Mary, 88. 

Apparently the sister of Lord 
Rochford and Queen Ann Boleyn, 
though it is extraordinary that 
she should be called Lady Mary 
Rochford. She married first Sir 
William Carey, by whom she had 
Henry Lord Hunsdon, and se- 
condly, Sir William Stafford, 
Knight. The entry relating to her 
is not a little curious ; it appears 
from it that her sister Anne Bo- 
leyn had pawned a jewel to her for 
the sum of 20/. which was redeemed 
out of the Privy Purse expences by 
order of the King. 

Lady Ann, 108, 111, 

113, 123, 133, 215. 

It seems that all these entries re- 
ferred to Ann Boleyn, and ought 
I: to have been inserted under her 
name. They are. however, alluded 
to at the commencement of the 
volume.

Rounds, for making of, 107, 145. 

A kind of Target at which arrows 
were shot, both for practice and 
amusement. Cavendish says, that 
when he was sent for by Henry to 
Hampton Court, after the death of 
Cardinal Wolsey, " I found him 
shooting at the rounds in the park 
on the backside of the garden, and 
perceiving him occupied in shoot- 
ing, thought it not my duty to 
trouble him, but leaned to a tree 
intending to stand there, and to 
attend his gracious pleasure Being 
in a great study, at the last the 
King came suddenly behind me 
where 1 stood, and clapped his 
hand upon my shoulder, and when 
I perceived him, I fell upon my 
knee. To whom he said, calling 
me by name, ' I will,' quoth he, 
' make an end of 'my game, and 
then I will talk with you/ and so 
departed to bis mark, whereat the 
game was ended. Then the king 
delivered his bow unto the yeoman 
of his bows and went his way in- 
ward to the palace." Ed. Singer.

Rowme appears to have been a

or " situation ;" thus in Lodge's 
Illustrations, in a letter dated 28th 
April, 1516, " The Master of the 
Rolles is departed, and Doctor 
Tunstalle hath his roicme, as the 
saying is." Vol. i. p. 9. The fee 
in question was due to him by 
virtue of his office, which was that

Scholars, to Mr. RatclifTe, a 
scholar at Cambridge, 224. 

Among the few redeeming traits in 
Henry the Eighth's character, was 
a love of learning, to which each of 
these entries bears additional testi- 
mony. Besides occasional gifts 
to Scholars of Oxford, Cam- 
bridge and Paris, and which in 
three years amounted to 83/. 13s. 4d. 
he also gave exhibitions, the 
whole expences of which in the 
same period were 63/. 6s. 8d. He 
moreover supported two scholars 
at St. Paul's School, the charges 
for which were 30/. 3s. ; making, if 
131. 9d. paid to the master of that 
school in January 1531, be in- 
cluded, a total of 190/. 12s. spent 
from November 1529 to Decem- 
ber 1532, for the encouragemen- 
and advancement of erudition; a 
trifling sum, it is true, when com- 
pared with recent instances of 
Royal munificence, but important 
when the value of money, and 
the manners of the times are con- 
sidered. 

Science, paid to a jeweller to be 
employed in his, 156. 
The use of the word Science in this 
sense is rather curious.

Apparently a gift of 20s. 4d. to pay 
the fee of affixing the great seal to

Secretary Master, 26, 77, 144. 
Probably the Principal Secretary 
of State, but it is not certain who, 
filled that office, in 1530 and 1531. 
Cromwell was not regularly ap- 
pointed to it until 1534 ; but it is 
most likely that he was the person 
so designated in these accounts.

Afterwards the King's brother-in- 
law, and Duke of Somerset, the 
celebrated Protector of England. 
These entries show the familiar 
manner in which he was treated 
by Henry as early as 1529. The 
first item is of a payment to him of 
337/. upon a reckoning between 
His Majesty and himself, and the 
second and third to money lost to 
him by the King at play. On 
one occasion Sir Edward won 
of Henry the large sum of 376/. 10*,

A Shalm is explained by Mr. Ayr-

renders him excellent authority 
on such a subject, " to be the base 
Cornet." Ellis's Original Letters, 
Second series, vol. i. p. 273. Bishop 
Percy informs us that " it was a 
wind instrument like a pipe, with 
a swelling protuberance in the 
middle :" 




" Item, my Lord useth and accus- 
tometh yearly when his Lordship 
is at home to gyf to iij of the Kyngs 
Shames when they come to my Lord 
yerly x s." Northumberland House- 
hold Book, p. 341. Cavendish 
says, when the king of France 
came, " he danced, and others 
with him, the most part of that 
night ; my Lord's minstrels played 
there so excellently all that night, 
that the shalme (whether it were 
with extreme labour of blowing, 
or with poisoning, as some judged, 
because they were more commend- 
ed and accepted with the king than 
his own, I cannot tell,) but he 
that played upon the shalme, an 
excellent man in that art, died 
within a day or twain after." Ed. 
Singer, 1825, vol. i. p. 114. Per- 
haps the earliest drawing of a 
Shalm extant, is in the Illustrations

Henry's attachment to naval affairs 
has been fully established, and 
he consequently paid great atten- 
tion to his ships. A curious list of 
his Majesty's navy, in 1525, 6, 
is given by Mr. Ellis, in his 
Original Letters, second Series, 
v. i. p. 218 et seq. as a note to 
a very interesting letter on the 
subject from Sir Edward Howard, 
Lord High Admiral, in 1513. See 
also a letter from some ladies to the 
King from Portsmouth about the 
year 1540, acquainting the King 
with the pleasure they derived from 
inspecting " the Great Harry.'' 
Ibid. First Series, vol. ii. p. 126.

Evidently the ship belonging to 
Sir William Fitz-William, after- 
wards Earl of Southampton, and 
which by his will dated in Sep- 
tember, 1542, he thus bequeathed 
to the King" Item, I give to 
the King's Majesty my great ship, 
with all her tackle, and my collar 
of the garter, with my best George 
beset with diamonds." Testa- 
msnta Vetu&ta, p. 707. Individuals 
frequently owned ships which were 
employed in the King's service, 
and which seem to have been con- 
sidered as a sufficient means of 
support, for Sir Edward Howard, 
the Lord Admiral, in his will 
dated in 1512, says, " Whereas I 
have two Bastards, I give the 
King's grace the choice of them,

Archdeacon Nares explains Shovel- 
board to be "a common trivial 
game, which consisted in pushing 
or shaking pieces of money on a 



board to .reach certain marks. 
Shovel-board play is graphically 
described in a poem entitled Mensa 
Lubrica, &c. written both in Latin 
and English by Thomas Master. 
The English Poem is cited at large 
in Bliss's edition of Anth. Wood, 
vol. iii. p. 84. The table had lines 
or divisions marked with figures, 
according to the value of which the 
player counted his game. It is 
minutely described by Strutt, Sports 
and Pastimes, p. 267. as still in use 
in pot houses, and played with a 
smooth halfpenny. The game was 
also called Shove-groat, Shove- 
board, and Shuffle-board." Glos- 
sary.

264, 272, 277. 

People supposed to be healed by 
the King's touch from the disease, 
thence called the King's Evil. 
" Andrew Borde, who wrote his 
Introduction to Knowledge, in 
king's reign, states, that ' the 
Kinges of England, by the power 
that God hath gy ven to them, doth 
make sicke men whole of a syck- 
ness called the Kynges evyll.' 
This extract and the entry above 
are sufficient to prove, were other 
evidence wanting, that Dr. Percy 
was much mistaken in supposing 
that ' this miraculous gift was left 
to be claimed by the Stuarts." 
Some curious matter upon this 
subject is collected in a note by 
Nichols, Literary Anecdotes, 195, II. 
504, Reed, Shak. X. 243, and see 
195. Amongst the Conway papers 
(MSS ) there is an order for a pro-

that for the future all shall bring 
certificates from the minister, &c. 
of the parish, for that many being 
healed, have disposed of their 
pieces of gold otherwise than was 
intended, and thereby fall into re- 
lapse.' Sir Kenelm Digby informed 
Mons. Moncenys, that if the per- 
son cured lost the piece of gold, 
the complaint immediately re- 
turned. Moncenys' Travels, t. ii.

For the following Note relative to 
this individual, the Editor is in- 
debted to Joseph Gwilt, Esq. 
F.S.A. a descendant of his family : 
" Thomas Smith, whose name so 
frequently occurs in these ac- 
counts, was most probably after- 
wards of Campden, Co. Gloucester ; 
he had also a grant of the manor 
of Lyersocle, Co. Heref. jointly 
with his son-in-law, Hugh Walshe, 
which was confirmed in the 35th 
of the same king. ThatSmythe 
was a man of considerable im- 
portance, may be inferred as well 
from his matrimonial alliances, 
as from the inscription on his mo- 
nument, in which he is described, 
' a pueritia sua aulicus.' Ifli 
the College of Arms there is a 
grant to Thomas Smith, by Chris- 
topher Barker, dated Boulogne 
J.544, and afterwards confirmed by 
Gilbert Dethick, from which it ap- 
pears that he was at Boulogne 
in that year ; probably attendant 
on the court there. Elizabeth, 
the first wife of Thomas Smith, 
was daughter and coheir of Eustace 
Fitzherbert, and relict of Edward 
Smith, of Cresing Temple, Co. 
Essex, by whom she had two chil- 
dren. By Thomas Smith it is not 
clear from the pedigrees, which 
exhibit some discrepances, that she

had issue. His second wife was 
Katharine, daughter of Sir George 
Throckmorton, of Coughton, relict 
of Robert Winter, of Hoddington, 
Co. Wigorn, by whom he had a 
numerous family. He was Sheriff 
of Gloucestershire in the years 
1571 and 1593 and died 1593. 
Over the place of his inter- 
ment near the altar of Campdeu 
Church, on the north side, is a 
canopied monument of the time 
with his figure in knight's armour 
of the size of life. On the com- 
partments between the pedestals 
under the columns are bassi re- 
lievi, representing his two wives, 
seven sons and six daughters. On 
the western face of the monument, 
are the arms of Smith, viz. a Fess 
between three Saltires ; and in an- 
other escotcheon, the Crest, viz. 
two Amphibamies indorsant. On 
the south side are three escot- 
cheons, the westermost with the 
arms of Smith. The next towards 
the altar, Smith impaling Throck- 
morton ; and OJney, Spyne and 
Bosson, quarterly. The last, Smith's 
impaling Fitzherbertin the first and 
fourth, and two other coats quar- 
terly. Against the north wall of 
the chancel is the following in- 
scription : ' Hie jacet vir verus 
Christianas Thomas Smith Ar- 
miger quondam Manerii di Camp- 
den. Dominus, a pueritia su& au- 
licus, qui suo tempore fuit e con- 
siliis Regis Marchise Walliae bisque 
Vicecomes comitatus Glouces- 
triae, ac justiciarius pacis ejusdem 
comitatus usque ad extremum 
aetatis, qui habuit diiae uxores ; 
primam Elizabethan! Filiam et 
hseredem Eustatii Fitzherbert Ar- 
migeri, secundam Katharinam 
filiam Georgii. Throckmorton Mi- 
Htis cum filiis et filiabus ut hie 
patet qui obit die 
Anno Dom. MDXCIII.' 

There is little doubt that this 
Thomas Smith was the father of 
Henry Smith, Esq. an Alderman of 
London, who is buried at Wands- 
worth, and whose extensive cha- 
ritable benefactions in Surrey and 
elsewhere are universally known. 
He bore the same arms with a 
difference, as appears by the fune- 
ral certificate, ia the College of 



Arms, Register i. 23. 30. and there 
are many other circumstances 
which tend to strengthen, such a 
conjecture." 

It appears from the Book of Quar- 
terly Payments from the 29th to the 
33rd Henry V11I. in the library of 
the Royal Society, that Smith was 
a Page of the Chamber, and re- 
ceived 10/. per annum for his wages ; 
and it is manifest from these en- 
tries that like Smeton and the 
two Williamses, he was a peculiar 
favourite of Henry, for all his ap- 
parel was paid for out of the privy 
purse, and he accompanied the 
King to Calais in October 1532,

He was knighted in 1529, and in

Sheriff of Northamptonshire. Sir 
William died, however, on the 22d 
June 1532, a month before his 
servant is said to have brought a 
present to the King. His son and 
heir was then very young, hence 
these gifts were probably sent by 
his mother or guardians.

Ox the, brought, 112. 

A Stalking Horse, Archdeacon 
Nares informs us, was ' sometimes 
a real horse, sometimes the figure of 
one cut out and carried by the sports- 
man for the following purposes. 
On being found that wild fowl which 
would take early alarm at the ap- 
pearance of man, would remain 
quiet when they saw only a horse 
approaching, advantage was taken 
of it, for the shooter to conceal him- 
self behind a real or artificial horse, 
and thus to get within shot of his 
game." In the Gentleman's Recre- 
ation both kinds of stalking horses, 
and the manner of using them, are 



fully explained. All these entries 
on the subject seem torefer to a real 
horse, and we learn from one of 
them that an ox was employed for 
the same purpose. A stalking horse 
occurs in the list of Henry's horses 
in the Ordinances made at TZltham, 
in the 17th Henry VIII. p. 200. 

Standards, for carrying Plate, 43. 
The word is used in a similar 
sense by Cavendish. " The King 
caused to be sent him three or four 
cart loads of stuff, and most part 
thereof was locked in great stand- 
ards (except bed and kitchen stuff) 
wherein was both plate, and rich 
hangings, and chapel stuff." Ed.

This entry almost defies explana- 
tion. The only instance in which 
strene occurs in the Glossaries is 
synonymously with strain, a race, 
descent, lineage. Hence it might, 
however unlikely, mean a pedigree; 
but it is more probable that it was 
kind of strainer.

Tables is considered to be the old

Pastimes an engraving of a Table 
occurs. Sir William Compton, 
by his will dated in 1523, be- 
queathed to Henry " a litUe chest 
of ivory, wherof one lock is gilt, 
with a chess-board under the same, 
and a pair of tables upon it, and all 
such jewels and treasures as are 
inclosed therein." Tc.-tamenta Ve- 
tustu, p. 593. Tables are thus 
spoken of in a Kniglit's Instructions 
to his Daughters, originally written 
in French, in April 1371, and 
translated about the reign of 
Henry VI. " Ther was a gentille 
knight's daughter that wratthed 
atte the Tables with a gentill man 
that was riotous and comberous 
and hadd an evelle hede, and the 
debate was on a point that he

Mr. Ellis states that this individual 
was Treasurer of the Chamber, 
and was appointed Secretary to 
the King for the French tongue, 
with a salary of 100 marks, in 1523. 
He purchased the manor of Layer 
Marney in Essex in 1525, and was 
Sheriff of that county in 1533. He 
died on the 26th October, 1545, 
and was buried at St. Margaret's, 
Walbrooke. Original Letters, First 
Series, vol. i. p. 283. Mr. Ellis 
has printed some, and referred to 
several of his letters. Collins says, 
Tuke was Secretary to Cardinal 
Wolsey, Peerage, Ed. 1779, vol. i. 
p. 87. The entries respecting him 
in these accounts only refer to the 
months of January and February, 



1530, and relate to" payments of 
large sums to the Emperor, or for 
other purposes. The whole amount 
paid into his hands on those occa- 
sions was 5143/. 8s.

Afterwards the first and only Bi-

- says of him in a note to a letter in

able civilian, and was employed 
in several embassies by Henry. He 
was translated to Norwich by Ed- 
ward VI. and to Ely by Mary, and 
died at Lambeth, 26th August, 
1570. That elegant writer far- 
ther observes, " The mildness 
of his conduct during the persecu- 
tions of the Protestants by Mary, 
secured him a quiet retreat in the 
following reign. In making a 
grave for the burial of Archbishop 
Cornwallis, at Lambeth, in 1783, 
the body of Bishop Thirlby was 
discovered in its coffin, in a great 
measure undecayed, as was the 
cloathing. The corpse had a cap 
on its head, and a hat under its 
arm."

The word token, per se, evidently 
meant any thing sent as a mark of 
kindness. In this instance it was 50 J. 
but it was more frequently a jewel 
or other article of value. Thus in 
the instance of Cardinal Wolsey, 
when Henry was informed by Dr. 
Butts that unless he sent him 
some testimony of his favour he 
would die within four days, " Even 
so will I, quoth the King, and 
therefore make speed to him again, 
and ye shall deliver him from me

this ring for a token of our good 
will and favour towards him, in the 
which ring was engraved the King's 
visage within a ruby, as lively coun- 
terfeit as was posssible to be de- 
vised." " And then he spake to 
Mistress Anne [Boleyn] saying, 
4 Good sweetheart, I pray you at 
this my instance, as ye love us, to 
send the Cardinal a token with com- 
fortable words, and in so doing ye 
shall do us a loving pleasure." 
Incontinent she took her tablet

Tomb, paid for the King's, 101. 
This entry is rather extraordinary, 
because Henry VIII. expressly 
states in his will, dated on the 
30th December, 1546, sixteen 
years afterwards, that his tomb was 
not then made. He orders that his 
body shall be buried in the choir 
of his College of Windsor, " mid- 
may between the Halls and the 
High Altar, and an honourable 
tomb for our bones to rest in 
be made, if it be not done by 
us in our life-time, 1 ' But it is 
evident from the item in question 
that a tomb was began for him as 
early as December, 1530, towards

was then paid 131. 6s. 8d.

1529-30, he speaks of " Sir 
William Fitz-W T illiam, Treasurer 
of the King's Household." Testa-

are other causes for believing that 
he was Treasurer of the Household

to Dover on the 9th October, and 
on his return the 18th of November 
1532. Among the entries in the

Offerings to the image of our Lady 
of Walsingham, were common at a 
very early period. William de 
Ufford, Earl of Suffolk, ordered 
by his will, dated in 1381, that a 
picture of a horse and man armed 
with his arms, should be made of 
silver, and offered to the altar of 
our Lady of Walsingham. Testa- 
menta Vetusta, p. 115. In the 
Vision of Pierce Plowman pilgrimages 
to our Lady of Walsingham, are 
thus noticed. " Hermits on a

It is evident that he was an artizan

Large pears. Cavendish describes 
Wolsey as eating roasted wardens 
at the moment in which he was 
seized with his fatal illness. " It 
came to pass at a certain sea- 
son sitting at dinner in his own 
chamber, having at his boards end 
that same day, as he divers times 
had to accompany him, a mess of 
the Earls' gentlemen and chap- 
lains, and eating of roasted wardens 
at the end of his dinner, before 
whom I stood at the table, dressing 
of those wardens for him, behold- 
ing of him I perceived his colour 
often to change," &c. Ed. Singer, 
1825, vol. i. p. 300. In a poem 
written by Lydgate temp. Henry 
VI. he thus alludes to Wardens. 

" Eke othere frutes, whiche that more

So little is known of the family of 
this individual, that the following 
particulars may be useful. He 
was the eldest son of Sir Richard 
Weston, of Sutton, Co. Surry, 
Knt. who in the Herald's Visi- 
tations of that county, is styled 
" Miles pro corpore, Magister 
Wardorum, Thesaurar' Calisie, et 
Sub-Thesaurar' Anglise." Sir 
Francis Weston was a Knight 
of the Bath, and Gentleman of the 
Privy Chamber, and fell a victim 
to a supposed criminal intimacy 
with Queen Anne Eoleyn, in 1536. 
He married Eleanor, widow of Sir 
Henry Knyvet, Knt. and daughter 
and sole heiress of Eleanor, (the 
daughter and heiress of Sir Roger 
Lewknor, Knt. one of the co-heirs 
of the Barony of Camois,) by her 
first husband, Sir Christopher 
Pickering, Knt. By her, who re- 
married to her third husband, John 
Vaughan, of Crickhowell, and 
died in 1582, Sir Francis Weston 
left issue a son, Sir Henry Wes- 
ton, Knt. : he was living in 1582, 
and had one son, Sir Richard 
Weston, and two daughters, Jane 
and Anne. Sir Richard was 
living in 1608, and his son Sir 
Richard was residing at Sutton 
in 1623, and by Grace, his wife, 
daughter, and heir of John Harper, 
of Chelston, in Co. Hereford, had 
issue Richard, then set. 5, John, 
Henry, and Francis. The descend- 
ants of Sir Francis Weston here 
mentioned are supposed to be ex- 
tinct; and Mr. Lodge informs us 
that in 1782, William Webb, Esq. 
assumed the name of Weston, in 
compliance with the will of Mrs. 
Melior Mary Weston, the last of 
that ancient family. Illustrations, 
vol. i. p. 30. note. See also the 
Gentleman s Magazine, vol. Hi. p.

favor in which he stood with the 
King. Cavendish makes him sa}',

Howard by his will, dated in 1512, 
bequeathed " his rope of bowed 
nobles that I hang my great whistle 
by, containing ccc Angels, to 
Charles Brandon," afterwards Duke 
of Suffolk. Testamenta Vetusta, p. 

; 534. The fact of Sir Edward's hav- 
ing thrown his whistle into the sea 
when forced overboard by the pikes 
of the enemy in an attack upon 
some French ships in the harbour of 
Conquet, is well known.

ney of Boston, in Lincolnshire. He 
is stated by Collins, Ed. 1779, vol. 
v. p. 15, to have accompanied the 
King to France in October, 1532. 
having in his retinue eleven ser- 
vants and two horse-keepers. At the 
coronation of Anne Boleyn he per- 
formed the duties of Earl Marshal 
for his brother the Duke of Norfolk, 
who was then ambassador inFrance. 
During the reign of Elizaheth he 
distinguished himself as High Ad- 
miral of England, was created Lord 
Howard of Effingham, and a Knight 
of the Garter. From his Lordship 
sprung the Earls of Nottingham and 
Effingham, both of which titles are 
extinct, and the present Lord How- 
ard of Effingham. On the first oc- 
casion in which he is mentioned in 
these Accounts he had won 9/i. 
of the King at Shovelboard, and 
on the other 40 li. were given him 
" in reward."

acceptable. In the Vision of Pierce 
Plowman, we find 
" Whyt wine of Osey, and red wine of 

Gascoyne 
Of the Renne, and of the Rochell the

mentioned ; and in the North-

Ed. 1827, p. 6. In Lodge's Illus- 
trations, vol. i. p. 17, Thomas Allen, 
in a letter to the Earl of Shrews- 
bury in 1516, says, " This day I 
trust to send towards Wyndfield

hedd claret, ij red wyne, on whit

informs the Earl ; " I have bought

tell. Your Lordship comands

February, 1530. It must have been

York Place or York House, now 
called Whitehall, belonged to the 
Archbishop of York, and was pos- 
sessed by Wolsey in right of that 
See. Henry seized it in 1529, and 
made it one of his residences. 
Hall says, ".after Christmas, 1530, 
he [the King] came to his manor 



of Westminster, which before was 
called Yorke Place, for after that 
the Cardinal was attainted in the 
Premunire, and was gone north- 
ward, he made a feoffement of 
the same place to the Kyng, and 
the Chapiter of the Cathedral 
of Yorke confirmed the same feoffe- 
ment, and then the King chaunged 
the name, and called it the Kynges 
manor of Westminster, and no 
more Yorke Place." Ed. 1809, 
p. 774. Abundant proofs, how- 
ever, exist in these Accounts, that 
it retained the name of York Place, 
until the period when they close, 
December, 1532. 



ADDENDA. 



IT is stated in p. 41, that the next page, i. e. f. 20 of the 
MS. is missing : the following notes of its contents, how- 
ever, occur among the extracts made from the MS. by 
Peter Le Neve, Norroy King of Arms, early in the last 
century, and which are now preserved in the Lansdowne 
MS. 737, It will at once be seen that Le Neve has not 
copied the MS. literally ; and there is cause to believe, 
either that he has omitted a few items, or that there 
was a mistake in the calculation of the person to whom 
these Accounts were entrusted. The latter conjecture is 
the more probable of the two, for Le Neve seems only to 
have copied the most striking entries.

Bonvice Anthony. 

He was a "merchant stranger." 
" A grudge" between him and 
other foreigners and some persons 
in London, is noticed by Hall, ed. 
1809, p. 718. 

Brakes. 

To the other references, p. 60 should 
have been added. 
Brereton William. 

Some curious particulars of Brere- 
ton will be found in Cavendish's 
Life of Wolsey, Ed. Singer, vol. ii. 
p. 34, from which it appears that 
he was Gentleman of the Cham- 
ber, and Steward of the Holt in the 
Marches of Wales. Cavendish 
says he had " by colour of justice" 
produced the execution of one 
Eton, 
"A gentleman born, that thorowghe 

my myght, 
So shamefully was hanged upon 

a gallowe tree 

Oonly of old rankor that roted 
was in me." 

Buttes Dr. 

It ought to have been remarked 
that Dr. Buttes is introduced by 
Shakespeare into " Henry the 
Eighth." His portrait occurs in 
Holbein's picture in Surgeon's 
Hall of Henry giving the charter 
to the Company of Surgeons. 
Anecdotes of Painting. 

Chartesaye. 

Chelsea, in p. 309, is an error of 



the press: the place meant is 
clearly Chertsey in Surrey. 

Crane, Master William. 

He was the Master of the Children 
of the Chapel ; and in the jBoofc of 
Quarterly Payments, 29 3 3' Henry 
VIII. an entry occurs of money 
given to him for the performance 
of the children, evidently in singing 
before the King. 

Cromer Doctor. 

He is described by Cavendish as a 
" Scots Physician." Ed. Singer, 
vol. i. p. 222. Henry gave him 
100/i. by his will. 

Dompne. 

It has been since suggested to the 
Editor by very competent autho- 
rity, thai" Dompne was the old Eng- 
lish word for " Dorninus," which 
was often applied to a priest j and 
that perhaps the equestrian was 
such another as Sir John Hurt, see 
p. 330." Upon the correctness of 
this explanation he cannot however 
refrain from entertaining great 
doubts. 

Dromeslade. 

In the account of Queen Elizabeth's 
Annual Expences among the " Mu- 
" sicians and Players" are " Drum- 
Steds 3, fee apeece 18/. 5s." Drom- 
stade is the Dutch for Drummer. 

Gloves. 

Gloves are thus noticed in the 
Vision of Pierce Plowman ; 
" Yea I have lent lords, that 

loved me never after 
And hath made mani a knight, 

both mercer and draper 
That payd not for his prentishod 
one paire of glovis." p. xxiiij. 
And again, 

" And, than gan a wastowre to 
wrath him and wolde 
have fought 

And to Piers the Plowman he 
profer'd his glove.

Henxmen. 

Besides what has been said on. 
Henxmen or Henchmen, it may be 
useful to add that " the school- 
master for the Henxmen" formed 
part of the royal establishment, 
and the payment of his wages 
occurs in the Book of Quarterly 
Payments, 29 33 Henry VIII. 
Hall also speaks of such a person : 
" In the laste moneth called De- 
cembre were taken certain traytors 
in the citie of Coventry, one called 
Fraunces Philippe, scholeinaster to

valued at xvs. Rot. Par/, vol. iv. p.

applied to a vessel for holding ink 
rather than to the material of which 
it was made. Those mentioned in 
theseAccounts must have been very 
common ones, as a dozen cost only 
two shillings.

Latimer Master, for preaching 
before the King, 



It was probably to this occasion 
that Bishop Latimer alludes in a 
Sermon preached before the Duch- 
ess of Suffolk in 1552. Speaking of 
a woman who was accused of hav- 
ing killed her child, whom he visit- 
ed in the prison at Cambridge, and 
ascertained to be innocent, he says, 
" Immediately after this I was 
called to preache before the Kyng, 
whyche was my firste Sermon that 
I made before His Majesty, and it 
was done at Windsor where His 
Majestye, after the Sermon was 
done, did most familiarly talke 
with me in a gallerye. Nowe 
when I sawe my tyme I kneelyd 
downe before His Majesty, open- 
ynge the whole matter," &c. The 
story is however too long to be in- 
serted, fol. 14. Printed at Alders- 
gate, 1584.

In April, 1530, two mules cost 
221. 10s. and in September, 1532, 
the sum paid for three was 35/. 
Thus the price continued very near- 
ly the same. 

Norris Sir Henry. 

He was gentleman waiter to the 
King, and was the only person per- 
mitted to follow him into his bed- 
chamber. Archgologia , vol. iii. p. 
155. Cavendish says he was also 
Groom of the Stole, vol. ii. p. 25. 
It would be most unjust to allude, 
ever so casually to Norris, and omit 
to state that he was offered a par- 
don, if he would confess that Anne 
Boleyn was guilty, but that he pre- 
ferred his honour to his life. 

Owche. 

An owche also meant bosses, but- 
tons, clasps, or any ornamental 
trinket. The custom of wearing a 
brooch, or some kind of ornament, 
in the front of the hat, is noticed 
by all our old poets. See Massin- 
ger, byGifford, iv. 213 ; Jonson, 
do. ii. 406, M.

Pole Mr. Addenda, p. 365. 

Afterwards the celebrated Cardi- 
nal Pole, Archbishop of Canter- 
bury. He is said to have been al- 
lowed a large pension to enable 
him to travel into Italy, but of 
which he was afterwards deprived. 
The entry in these accounts of 70&. 
was, it is most probable, a mere 
gratuity, or present, for we never 
find another instance of a similar 
payment. As Pole was then thirty 
years of age, the title of " the 
Kings scholar" is curious. 



Rat-taker. 

The name of the rat-taker in the 
30 Hen. VIII. was John Wolley. 
Book of Quarterly Payments, 29 32 
Henry VIII. 

Relick water. 

It has been suggested whether 
R click water was not water in 
which some relicks had been im- 
mersed, with the view of giving it 
a sanative quality, which was pro- 
bably supposed to be imparted to 
those who tasted of, or were sprink- 
led with it. 

Removing day. 

This expression was thus used by 
Henry the Eighth: Sir Thomas 
More informed Cardinal Wolsey 
that he asked Henry to dispatch 
some business on the day on which 
his letter was written ; " his Grace 
lawghed, and saied, Nay by my 
fayth, that will not be, for this is 
my removing day sone at New 
Hall." Ellis's Original Letters, Se- 
cond Series, vol. i. p. 293. 

Rights. 

Much light is thrown upon this 
word, by the following entry in the 
Book of Quarterly Payments, 29 
33 Hen. VIII. 

" Item for the Kingis offeringe this 
Sonday at taking his Rights in the 
mornyng, vj s. viij d. 
Thus it was clearly connected with 
a religious duty, though its precise 
meaning has not been ascertained. 
It is needless to observe that the 
conjecture on the subject in p. 
347 is decidedly erroneous. 

Rowme or Rome. 

This word is thus further illustra- 
ted: Cavendish makes Brereton 
say, 



" Furnished with romcs 1 was by 

the kyng, 
The best I am sewer he had in 

my con trie 
Stewart of the Holt, a rome of 

great wynnyng 
In the marches of Wales, the 

which he gave to me." 
And imputes to Norris the remark, 
" Offices and romes he gave me 
great plenty." 

Ed. Singer, vol. ii. pp. 25, 34. 
It is hence obvious that the expla- 
nation given in p. 348 is correct. 

Sloppes. 

This word is further elucidated by 
the following extract from a letter 
from Richard Onslow, Recorder of 
London, dated in February, 1565, 
stating that in consequence of a 
recent Proclamation several ho- 
siers had applied to him to know 
whether they might " lyne a Sloppe 
hose not cutte in panes wyth a ly- 
nyng of cotton styched to the 
Sloppe, over and besydes the lyn- 
nen lynyng, and the other Jynyng 
straytt to the legg : whereunto 
upon consideracyon of the wordes 
of the proclamacion I answered 
them all, that I thought surely 
they could not : and that any loose 
lynyng not straytt to the legg was 
not permytted, but for the lynyng 
of panes only, and that the hole 
upper stock being in our Sloppe 
uncutt could not be said to be in 
panes, wherewith they departed 
satisfyed. Sythens which tyme 
dyvers of them have been wyth 
me and declared that for as moche 
as they have refused to lyne the 
slopp so, their customers have gone 
from them to other hosyers dwel- 
lynge without Temple Barr, who 
not only have so lyned the Slopp, 
bu* also have sayd that your 
Honour hath declared, that they 
may lawfully so doe." Ellis's

ii. p. 307.

ringing of the spurs worn by per- 
sons walking and transacting busi-

on them called spur money, the ex- 
action of which was committed to

Note to Gifford's Jmison. vol. ii. 
p, 49. M. The custom is not yet 
extinct ; but whether the entries re- 
ferred to in these Accounts were at 
all connected with it, is at least 
doubtful, for it must first be shown 
that it prevailed at so early a pe- 
riod. , 

Tomb, the King's. 

A doubt ought to have been -ex- 
pressed whether the payment in 
question did not relate to the tomb 
of Henry the Seventh, though the 
expression of " the King's tomb" 
renders it more probable that it 
referred to one commenced by 
Henry for himself. 

Virginals. 

This instrument, with a lady play- 



ing upon it, is given in the series 
of cards so beautifully engraved 
by Jost Ammin : the fool is in a 
ludicrous attitude in the back 
ground. See Singer On Playing 
Cards, 184. Earle, in his Micro- 
cosmography, says, that " She, the 
precise hypocrite, suffers not her 
daughters to learn on the Virginals, 
because of their affinity with or- 
gans." p. 97. M. In the list of 
" Musicians and Players" in the 
account of Queen Elizabeth's An- 
nual Expences, p. 266, are, " Vir- 
ginall players, 3, fee apeece, 30 li." 
being nearly double as much as was 
allowed to any other musician. 

Waits. 

Dr. Pettingall, in his remarks on 
the "Gule of August," says, "what 
we at present call ' the waits,' or 
the music on the nights of the 
Christmas holydays, is only a cor- 
ruption of the wakes or nocturnal 
festivities." Archaologia, vol. ii, p.
